Dupa cum stiti, Skivirus a fost prezent la evenimentul BMW X1 Live Tour unde am avut ocazia sa cunoastem trei dintre riderii K2 Skis in Team Europe. Ne-am dat impreuna, am petrecut impreuna si am decis sa tinem legatura. Pentru a-i cunoaste mai bine am ales sa stam un pic cu ei de vorba. Din motive lesne de inteles, discutia s-a purtat in engleza si sper sa nu deranjeze pe nimeni.
Haideti sa il cunoastem pe Felix Wiemers.
Skivirus: Hi Felix! It was a pleasure meeting you last weekend in Poiana Brasov. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer our questions. Our readers are eager to get to know you so let's begin by introducing yourself.
Felix: Hello everybody, my name is Felix Wiemers. I study in Marburg sport and physics. It is a city far away the mountains in the middle of Germany. So I decided to stop my studies this winter to live in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal. Now I have a lot of time for skiing.
Skivirus: First thing that everyone wants to know for sure is when did you start skiing and where?
Felix: I started skiing when I was two and a half year in the southern part of Tyrol. I spent my holidays with my family there in a nice motorcaravan.
Skivirus: How did you get into skiing and what helped you develop your style?
Felix: When I was young I did a lot of gymnastics. This helped me very much in the park for learning new tricks. Especially the flips.
Skivirus: What/who influenced your style?
Felix: I just do what seems to be funny and looking good. No matter if it is Old- or Newschool.
Skivirus: Getting back to the present... you are sponsored by K2. When did you become a pro skier?
Felix: This is now the third season in the K2 team. I just wrote an application and was very happy when they answered it. I was really stoked when I got my first pair of skis for free.
Skivirus: We reckon you are into freestyle skiing and saw landing some pretty cool tricks in Poiana Brasov last weekend. What's your favorite trick and why?
Felix: I love to do switch 7 on kickers. You can combine this trick with lots of grabs.
Skivirus: We all know skiers are prone to accident and injuries. Have you had any accidents that kept you on the bench for a longer period of time?
Felix: In the beginning of the last season I destroyed my ACL. It happened in the morning of a nice sunny day on the mountain, just after my warming up. I did a forward 7, like many times before...
Skivirus: Last question Felix. Why do you do when there is no snow to chop?
Felix: In the summer I spend a lot of time in the gym. I learn a lot of new gymnastics and train on the trampoline for the winter. I also love to go windsurfing...

Ii multumim lui Felix pentru interviul acordat si va sfatuim sa stati pe faza ca in curand o sa apara si ceilalti doi rideri.
