I'm super stoked winning the last event of the year!

I also won the European tittle for 5th time!

The last stop of the EFPT was organized in Brouwersdam which is my home spot. The Damx event was again very well organized and we scored some amazing conditions. In the single elimination I came out early against Davy Scheffers also local rider who was on fire so I started my heats on high level, after winning against Davy, I won against the young talents Riccardo Marca and Sam Esteve. Then the final against 2015 world champion Dieter van der Eyken. 

The same day we finished the double elimination. Jacopo Testa was on fire and he fought back from 4th place into the final against me. The wind picked up a lot since the single elimination, In the final I was using the JP freestyle 101 with the Neilpryde wizard 4.5. From the beginning to the end we where throwing big moves. I managed to land a lot of double power moves like airfunnelburner, doubleburner, airbobculo, and also landed a nice shifty during the heat. With this heat I won the event and the European Title. 

At the end it has been an amazing event for me and it gives me a lot of motivation for next year.

This year has been with ups and downs, but I'm happy I could win all the EFPT events. My goal for next year is to do the same in the PWA freestyle. So no more brakes!
