What's up1. april 2019
That took a while to go online and type a couple of words.
Why? Enjoying life! Hitting the road in an old Mercedes! Ride more write less!
But in the end the world runs fast and this website is oldschool and needs to be redone. From scratch. And so itÄs proper visual on a smartphone...
So stay tuned - I am working on it. www.vollblutrider.de reloaded !
And meanwhile - go out ride your bike - and so we might meet!
Covershot13. november 2017
What to say? Covershot happiness!

Falltime3. november 2017
So close to winter... But falltime was quite nice, got to flee the wet n cold weather a couple times. Like at the MountainBIKE Testival in Brixen, Southtyrol.
Check this YouTube link
to get a brief impression of it.
And in the end an alpine cover shot???
But earlier I did hit winter full time. Far up north in Finnland, yes in Lapland, I traveled with Jamie Nicoll and Gary Perkins. Cold, snow, rain, hats, fireplaces, reindeers and adventurous days.
are a couple of pics to get an idea... Thanks for everything!
Terres Noires12. september 2017
Digne-les-bains - that did sound familiar. I had to stop here, take out my bike and yes, I remembered. Black, french slickrocks like Moab 2.0.
Of caus, just a little better ;-)
Black sandy but gripfull soil. Wallrides, jumps, roller, uphills - everything.
Have a look right herw
to see some POV footage and pictures.
And sorry for the bad POV, no actioncam, just my phone and some straps....
And all around this place - great endurorides filled up with all you need - don't forget to stop when you drive by!

how Stefan Eigners shot turned out.
(pre)summermadness12. july 2016
Long time no type. But not because of some bad news - no, just the (pre) summermadness. A lot of Latsch and some inbetween home.
Than a little trip here and there, lake Garda, Easttyrol, Southtyrol, Tessin, Erzgebirge, Tyrol and in the end, home.
Check it out, here

See you somewhere on the trails.

In the middle of winter it's time again to say a quick HELLO. Not to show you the epiciest pics, but to let you know how you can make your winter adorable.
Testing and shooting in Latsch-Southtyrol, Christmas-trailriding on my old hometrails - where my origin lies. And again testing in Finale Liguia. Just got back right in time to be part of the winter and carve some fresh lines in the snowy slopes.
To give you a quick n easy impression, check here
Solong and till soon.
selfieterror22. october 2015
Fall, Autum or Otono. Whatever it is its nice and colourful, but to capture that on a actionslefie... annoying! At least if you want to go shreddin'.
So rap it up and go one! But you can taste the season and feel the urge to shred on those
Next time with photografer or more boredomness.
Cover all over14. october 2015
And again - covershots are dropping like leaves in the fall. Unfortunately without my Norco, due to the occation of press-events-pictures.
But nice fire-red 2016 clothes. Check here
for the shots of Dennis Stratmann and Steve Martin.
Maybe the next one from Stefan Eigner with my Range in Ainsa ???
On the top9. august 2015
It's Latsch again. But no duty just fun, you could call it holiday - quite nice.
Madritschjoch, Zwölferkreuz and Göflaner Schartl.
Of cause, here
are a couple of pics to make you jellous.
And because it's nothing but nice - Brixen with it's Peak Week is on. So more peaks to come...
French Pfingsten9. june 2015
Hey, finally not Latsch again! It's south france avec mon nuveau Norco Range Carbon - holy shit :-)
Ardeche, Provence, Haut Provence - a lot of water, gravel-trails and breathtaking rides.

And now, on the road again!
Latsch Vegas4. may 2015
Yes, again Latsch. Captured by Tom Bause. The nice result can be checked out right here
. Enjoy and...
Rock n Roll!
Latsch Latsch Latsch - and no more facebook24. april 2015
And again: Latsch Southtyrol - yes, its another post, but it seems to be the same. Guiding, teaching, riding, loving Latsch. And even climbing.
And one of the results, a covershot (here)
And by the way, facebook does not belive that I am myself. They doubt my profil-name and even id and articles couldn't be proof enough for someone like them...
Oh well, than more time for www.vollblutrider.de
Haibike coaching11. march 2015

And there are three more weekends to come - looking foreward.
Day off2. february 2015
How fun a day-off can be... Inbetween of two days of testing for MountainBIKE magazin I got a day-off and filled it with italien coffee, sauna and plenty of riding.
Since I took my camera you can check right here
how it felt.
Man, it's good to take a day off!
meanwhile in Germany... 22. january 2015
Long time no news - there where none. So whats happening meanwhile in Germany? Check those pictures
and get a tast of winter.
Tour starts at home but takes a while and covers a lot of muddy lower parts in freezing cold conditions... nasty but worth it :-)
doublecover24. november 2014
Here it is: the Bergfühlung catalogue

But even more exciting, the sportsstudents calendar from Kilina Kreb

Enjoying the muddy trails and looking foreward to snow!
Stocherkahnjump15. october 2014
After the great vid (nearly 40.000 hits) and my first shit-storm and a great time at the MountainBIKE Testival in Brixen, I had to fulfill a nother project. The Stocherkahn-jump.
I can tell you - scary! Ghetto set up, everything wabling and no clue if it will work out...
But - a lot of fun and the result will be in Kilina Krebs annual calendar
And in advance, here
is the making of.
Looking foreward to the calendar!

european enduro series30. august 2014
Wow - busy days. European Enduro Series
in Nauders, rock n roll in Latsch and Eurobike in Friedrichshafen.
Now in Fiss for a presscamp...
But the race was worth a lot. I finished 3rd and it was a blast. Quite challenging, but rewarding. check out some pictures
And Latsch was more fun than ever. Checked out all the good stuff and figured some projects for the future.
And finally, the RULE THE TRAIL - movie is about to be launched! It's gonna be sweet. Looking foreward - so stay tuned.
kind of summer19. august 2014
Couple of weeks later and not only a little happened. Videoshooting in Latsch, south tyrol - I got the cover of the latest issue of Mountainbike (9/14) and traveled a bit.

Now its time to head on to race the European Enduro Series
And than, Eurobike Friedrichshafen - see you there!
nationals28. july 2014
No - unfortunately not. Not too much to say about, I was not allowed to start at the german nationals, due to a too short in advance ordered licence.
how my weekende looked like. Oh well, not more to say.
The "schwäbisches Tagblatt"14. july 2014
The local newspaper did a decent interview with me as a not only local hero...
I won't translate the whole thing, but check here
out how much it is!
And don't forget the auktion of the fox-fork
Where the whole money goes to Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V.
Bikes and Beats10. july 2014
Successful - that was the word of Bikes and Beats 2014
in Saalbach-Hinterglemm as I would say.
Best weather - perfect people - a load of parties and never the less: a win in my first race this year.
I took the win of the Fox Enduro-Challenge. 10km and 1000hm downhill - challenging but worth it.
Best of all - the win was a brandnew 2015 Fox 34 160mm.
Exactly this fork will be sold right HERE
and the whole money goes to Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V.
. Be part of it and make a bid.
are some pics to it, with the fork, the ceremony and the after-race-run.
That's it for now, yours DER Professor
Rides11. june 2014
Took a while but now it's there. My new rides. They not only ride smooth, they also look great. First try was in Nauders at Greendays opening. Great place to shred some hand-built trails!
Second try-out was the photoshooting for the 2015 Zimtstern catalogue. Some nice and huge jumps - I can tell you! Felt good beeing in the air!
Now a quick vacation and than heading off to Bikes and Beats
By the way here
are the pics of my new rides.
Pause over25. may 2014
Long time no see - true and I am sorry.
The reason therefore was a broken metacarpal bone in my left hand. Surgery mandatory.
But as I am known for - back again, quick and unchained. The first photos been taken.
So stay tuned for news - either from greenday Nauders, tiretest for the MountainBIKE magazin or the photoshooting for the 2015 Zimtstern bikewear...
Needless to say - summer here I come.
Cover, Coverage, home sweet home and a bus5. april 2014
All good in the end... That is exactly what it is, concerning the latest cover of the MountainBIKE Magazin (05/14), featuring ME!
And on top of that the inside... Big thanks to Dennis Stratmann who delivered a bunch of really good pictures for the enduro-bike-test.
And the bus! Pretty colourful and bright - might be my silhouette what makes it so bright... thanks for that honour.
To know what I'm talking about, check here

And than I visited my home sweet home - trails more than ever - sweet. And some nice shots with Paul Masukowitz but they are not yet to show... stay tuned.
