Gerolf and I go back a while, I believe some 20 years when we met during the anual Trofeo Monte Grappa in Bassano. Back then we were both competition-hungry guys, with a lot to proof and little to lose. Over the years then, we spent some good times during countless Worlds and European events.
A few seasons ago, upon a private flying holiday in Austria we ran into each other again. It was in Greifenburg I recall, and he talked me into joining him to check out his new playground – those remote rock faces back in there, forming the main Alpine Divide.
We had two unreal flights that weekend, which got me absolutely hooked. I am coming back with a group of Norwegians now every year. Adventure Flying allows you to see the Alps from a perspective that competition flying simply can not provide.
