After a good night’s rest for some, but not for those who went to the boat party on the river by the hotel, we headed off to Jena which was formerly in the old East Germany.
Arto Saari had been here before with Thomas Gentsch along with Ali Boulala and Shane Cross before their tragic accident so there were some good memories to talk about from those days. It seemed that quite a few of the locals were still around as they came up to Arto and talked to him about the good memories they had from the demo back then.
We were a man down on this demo as Ben Nordberg had hurt himself at the Wurzburg demo and was unable to ride. This was more than frustrating for him as the park had one of the better looking mini ramps that you are likely to find these days and we all know that Ben can destroy a mini ramp.
Rather than a demo as such, the mini ramp was an open session with the locals mixing it up with Arto, Louie Lopez, Alec Majerus and crowd favourite Tom Penny.
After the heated mini ramp session died down Alec, Louie and demo- ender Arto casually cruised around the street course.
Once the demo was over there was a classic product toss and we were out of there to the outskirts of Munich to check out a street spot that no one had been to before.
Alec Majerus got things rolling straight away and that got everyone else even more hyped to leave their own mark on the spot.
What to expect in Episode Three…? Berlin!
