2nd home for the winter is California, USA!! I just love coming out here, waking up to clear sky's in the morning is just amazing :) Last week I spend a couple of day's at the Specialized HQ in Morgan Hill and got to ride in Santa Cruz quite a bit.... that place is just amazing!! For most of the winter I'll be in the Laguna area, perfect place to ride my Mountainbike, Dirtbike and BMX bike!!
2013 Done and Dusted

I remember like it was yesterday, being at my first ever World Enduro Series in Punta Ala, Italy at the beginning of this season. I was so nervous for this race that I slept bad the whole week and had a hard time eating! It was such an awesome race and ending up 4th was pretty amazing. The past 6 months of racing have gone by fast, I enjoyed every minute of it and I am super happy that I decided to start racing in Enduro. It's always a bit scary when you start doing something new and I felt a bit out of my comfort zone. But I can look back on a good season with 2 wins at the SRAM Specialized Enduro series, 2x 3rd place podiums at the World Enduro Series and a 5th place overall. I definitely had to learn some stuff the hard way in Enduro but all of that was a great learning experience! I was happy to finish my season in Finale Ligure, Italy 2 weeks ago. After my crash at World Champs 4-cross it was a big challenge to get fit for this race but I had great support from my team and people around me that got me back on my bike just in time. Now it is time to chill out, rest up and get my plan ready for 2014!! #iamspecialized #cantwait
