    Self-portrait in the middle of nowhere / eastern europe. I found this statue five years earlier online in a blog and tried to locate it for years. In 2017 I managed to track it down, the stars aligned and I managed a visit. When I arrived I noticed that it was triple the size that I expected it to be. The drop that seemed to be 3meters was now 9 meters at the highest point. The run in was a 20cm thin track with no room for error. A heavy storm was pushing me towards the drop as well. I was questioning if I should give this a try. In a long time, I was actually afraid. But then I saw a small gap in the clouds coming towards me, the sun pushing through. I knew this was my only chance to get the photo I dreamed about for so long. Once the Gap had arrived I had 2 Minutes to shoot my photo before the light was gone. I gave it three tries, before the light vanished and only the storm remained. This one is the best shot. printed in my 16-page interview in Mountainbikerider magazine 12/17

    Self portrait from my series "Muethers heritage" discovering the remains of famous gdr architect Ulrich Müther. This one was rather scary since only the sceleton of the building was still standing and one wrong move would have been fatal.

    the street.
    Erik Hölperl

    last time I made it to this spot, it was full of water. So happy that I have been able to give this spot a solid try. It was quite a challenge to get some air on this building. starting with the run in, to the kinky vert transition. (self portrait)

    Selfportrait Assistent - Daniela Ufermann -------------------------- Pushing yourself on this spot felt like playing chicken with a semi-truck on the highway. One wrong move and you are in pieces. The 70kmh windgusts did not really help.

    malage
    Erik Hölperl

    This photo was shot on my succsessfull journey to meet my idol and bmx legend Ruben Alcantara. On a tour around town we stopped by the famous malaga tunnel. I think it is one of the first photos with that spot in wet condition. The reflections on the wall and on the floor tell you a lot how much grip was left....... none. Took some quality two tire slides before I managed to get a couple clean runs.

    March 2015 photo/ rider Erik Hölperl Some spots make you wonder if the architect had this kind of usage in mind when he designed the Building. I read about this place in a architecture magazine in the library of my university and I had to check it out. After visiting Ruben Alcantara in Malaga we found it on our way home. Probably one of the most scary spots I have ever ridden. Beeing close to the ocean you had to deal with unforseable wind gusts and a surface that would cut you into pieces if you fall. worth it though.

    photographer/rider: Erik Hölperl riding this particular Bobsledtrack was a dream of mine for a very long time so when my semesterholiday began this was the first thing we did. We drove there in the night and parked very close and slept in the car. We got up before sunrise just to find that it rained over night. It was also my first time being on a bike since about two month because I injured my wrist. So I was nervous. Hopping fences to ride a wet forbidden and dangerous track with exactly zero warmup isnt really the smartest thing but it turned out fine. The feeling and sound of the screaming backtire sliding in the oververt was one of the radest expiriences I ever had on two wheel.

    had a little Trip to Berlin today, to much fun riding my bike so just a little snapshot this time. At the very end of the day I decided that I wanted that shot but I was pretty exhausted so Iam not really happy with it. Still a nice little opposite euro over the Entrance
