Was this the most dangerous challenge you have done? It was definitely one of the scariest and most dangerous things I've ever done in my life. Riding on an 8cm wide rail, which is 200m high, was pretty tough.
Did you use any safety measures? Yes, I was wearing a safety rope, otherwise it would have been totally irresponsible. Although I was just secured by one guy and a rope, which wasn't really a safe way to do it.
Where did the idea come from? I had this idea a few months ago when I was looking for new spots where to film a video project. I searched for all kind of different places on google, and suddenly saw a massive dam. I just thought how awesome it would be, to ride across a thin rail which is high up. I had the idea, searched for the perfect dam and went there with some friends.
Did you pull it off at first try? Unfortunately not. I thought I could make it with the first go, but the strong wind made it really tough. I didn't want to do it more than just once, but in the end it took me about 7 tries to get to the middle of the dam. I don´t think I´ve ever been so full of adrenaline in my life!
Why did you do this? I always push my limits and try to do things, that no one has done before. It´s all about being creative, doing new things and pushing the limits.
