When was the last time:

You upset your neighbours?

Last weekend my brother and I had a little party at the house. I don't think they appreciated it!

When was the last time:

You won a race?

The 26th of August at Montegenevre, France during the French Cup. I won the Junior race and finished 2nd scratch behind Pascal and in front of Florent Payet. I was pretty stoked!

When was the last time:

You hurt yourself?

Two weeks before the test events and Maribor World Cup I broke my hand and had some surgery to fix it.

When was the last time:

You brought something you didn't need?

Last weekend my Grandfather gave me some absolutely useless things! He was happy, so it's cool though.

When was the last time:

You fixed a puncture?

During a BMX street session while attempting a bunny hop to manual on a big ledge.

When was the last time:

You scared yourself?

I was practising at the dirt jumps and tried to three sixty a jump and went a little bit too long... Aaaahhh!

When was the last time:

You saw something that made you go "Holy Shit!"

While watching the FMX and the BMX Big Air at the X Games.

You did some actual digging with a spade?

Every evening after school I dig in my backyard.

When was the last time:

You heard a really good song?

Yesterday Fleetwood Mac - The Chain.

When was the last time:

You broke the law?

A few weeks ago while doing a BMX street session with friends. The cops didn't appreciated too much...they chased us through the city. We avoid the fine and it was pretty fun!

When was the last time:

You puked your guts up?

End of September, at a friend party I drunk a bit too much... That's all I can remember!

During the training session in the Schladming World Cup. I crashed and snapped my rear derailleur

When was the last time you:

Felt so good you thought you could fly?

In Montgenevre during the French Cup race, I felt perfect and could have been faster maybe but I decide to ensure my ranking.
