The Fox Track . . . HANNOVER . . . GERMANY

The Fox track was by far the most original idea at the Hannover Builders Jam. Over some beers on the first night of the jam Alex Irvine and Felix joked about building a pump bump track starting from one end of the spot passing through the tent were there would be 3 whippy and one over the top pump bumps. It would then exit the tent and continue on to a wall ride and at the other end finishing with another quarter pipe so u could turn round and do it all again . . .

It was sad to say goodbye to Postojna, but we had to catch a Friday night up in the Slovenian capital city Ljubljana. We found rough cobble stone quarter pipe along the way and it seemed to get the best of everyone.

PARTY TIME . . . 2ER BUILDERS JAM . . . Hannover, Germany

The week of hard work was over and it was time to party. The man who had been taking care of our stomachs for the week 'The Doc' showed us how to party. In a drunken whirlwind he began piling up tables, chairs and anything he could get his hands on including his own cooking utensils, pots, pans and plates then doused the lot in petrol and set it alight . . . 2er was on fire once again! The Docs portable cooking kitchen was also turned into a tattoo studio for the night and many of the builders got the 2er logo or what they had built engraved into their skin for a lifetime memory of the week that had pasted.
The following day as the Doc set of for his next cooking adventure and the dust was settling it all came to grips that we had basically built a park in 1 week. While everyone was admiring their work of art and battling a severe hangover, some guy lay trapped under a stack of crates pissing his pants and screaming as everyone laughed at the poor sod. 
I stayed a couple of days after everyone had left to enjoy the park and some quiet barbecues with 2er lot. A big thanks to Daniel May, Robin, Max, Baumi, The Doc, Alex Irvine and all the other lads for the endless building knowledge, this was no doubt a week none of us will ever forget!!!

LAST DAYS OF BUILDING . . . 2ER, Hannover, Germany . . .

Last days of building . . . The spot was starting to come together and like kids in a candy store everyone started pointing out the new lines. The Fox Spot guys have an obsession with speed bumps and being trained by them the last few days I decided to make my own speed bump with another novist Sven one of my homies from Hannover. Sven was recently in a bad car accident on his way to visit me in Galicia with Robin! Hope you guys are doing well! Neither one was injured.
The last few days of building a lot of people started showing up for the jam who couldnt make it for the rest of the week due to other commitments. Others just came and kind of blew out the vibe a little, the sound of concrete cutters and Black Sabbath being silenced by some guys sequence shots . . . By the afternoon the sun was out, Jupis Banana was ready to skate among other things and the first session went down with smiles from ear to ear! Doc kept pumping out the meals now catering for maybe double the amount of people and the hoards of people began to flock in to skate and set up camp for the weekends festivities!!!
