Second stop of Downmall Tour 2016 was taking place at Berlin, Germany. Tomas Slavik was able to win all his race runs and took well deserved 1st place and also jumped on 1st place in overall ranking of Downmall Tour 2016. For Slavik it was also first win on his new race bike GHOST RIOT LT 2016 which is showing a new potential of this type of a bike!
“ Im pretty stoked from the win. Track here is really short with many turns what means that there is a lot of spots for making mistake. Every little mistake counts and makes a big difference in result. I was riding very consistent runs and I didn’t make much mistakes. I felt also great on my new bike GHOST RIOT LT, which is having 130mm of travel and feels way better in braking and turning on stairs. Really love that bike and Im sure that its making my performance faster and makes me feel better. It was shame that Fischi crashed in first run and wasn’t able to qualify to final run. We always push each other and it for both of us big motivation for pushing the limits of our riding. One week ago we had a big battle, which was super exciting for us and for spectators too. Next week Frankfurt, really looking forward for this new venue, because the track will be over 700 m long with a lot of new obstacles and features! Thanks to my fans and sponsors! See you in Frankfurt!”
Next stop of Dowmall Tour is on 30.1.2016 in Frankfurt, Germany! For more information, photos and videos from Tomas Slavik preparations for next stop of Downmall Tour follow his social feeds:
