Since I was born, there was not only one thing in my life what I took 100% seriously, only been a Motocross Manger gives me step by step the self-confidence to make something really brilliant in my life.
Motocross was for me always a privilege, but the real life woke me up two weeks ago with a big Hammer full gas in my face.

My heart is still broken, but you have much, you can lose a lot. But people from of our sports knows, to perform successful, you need to be mental strong for your goal.

**If you are not mentally strong enough – you are not able and ready to fight for your title**

Motocross will be always my first love in my life, and I will never go away 100%, but my time to perform as team manager is sadly over and out now. Thanks for all this, 100000 memories of the last year’s, and of course, I’m f***ing proud of all my partners and sponsors and definitely also about my CREW. Now I need to make my self Ready in shape, to fight for a new Challenge to become a successful CEO in our Family business”.
