2011-06-28 // Freeride Battle in Slovenia 2011
In this season our young-gun Johannes Scharl was able to improve his performance in the Freeride World Tour Qualifier Series. For the last two seasons he has been the youngest male snowboarder competing in this tour. After his 4th place at the FWQ K2 Chill series in New Zealand, he scored the 2nd place at the FWQ Freeride Battle in Kanin – Slovenia.
On the first day of competition he placed 3rd after the qualification run. ,,The first day was pretty nice! We had lots of good snow and I was able to stick my line just as I wanted”, he said. ,,The second day was quite harder. The strong winds had taken away a lot of snow and so we had to deal with a lot of icy parts in our lines. I decided to pick a solid and playful line. I learned a lot during my two seasons of competing and so I made the exact right choice!” Johannes rides a F2 Respect board with a FTWO Spyro Team binding: ,,I had the perfect snowboard for these kind of conditions! It gives me a lot of flexibility in the complicated and exposed parts of my runs and a lot of control in the fast ones. I love it!”
Johannes managed to get some spots in the highest stage of FWQ competitions – the 4 star events. His young age gives him a lot of time to learn and improve his riding-style: ,,I am happy to have F2 and FTWO as sponsors! They help me to keep on pushing my limits and progress in my sport!” We will see where his Freeriding Career will take him and as we know him, the next big project is never far away!
