It’s the 25th Erzbergrodeo, and even though I only accompanied my brother at the beginning, I’ve been actively involved more often than he has been in the meantime. 😛
And I infected Junior with the EBR virus,. So you might say the EBR is some kind of a family tradition.
So what could be more logic than participating in the 25th Erzberg Rodeo? After all we are quite married in the meantime.
Actually, I was reasonable and have declared my resignation in good time (2 years ago), but this, it must be – once – again. 😉
A little masochism resonates there probably too, or vapidnes, or winter depression, or….. but actually no matter why, I have registered as rider again!
So now it’s time for training ! Eh well, since the Christmas festivities are just around the corner, not so bad at all for loosing weight . 😉
It was a very though and hard decision for me to participate at the EBR only as visitor in 2017.
My Accident in September showed me, that I have gotten a little bit to reckless with my health and that I should step down. The iron mountain is an enemy you can not, and you shouldn’t underestimate.
With my age, I should encourage my children, which I gladly will do, but avoid such adventures for myself.
I do have mostly positive experience from there.
The physical and mental training sometimes at, or over, the personal limit helped me to nearly avoid the clash with the car at the Großklockner .
So I could walk and drive away only slightly damaged and hurt.
Without the fast reaction, the right instinct and my perfect body condition at the time of the accident (2 weeks upfront of the EBR), I wouldn’t have walked away from there, but – at least – would have been carried away by ambulance. So many thanks to the EBR Team, I owe you! 😉
Still, I will do my enduro trainings and participate in Workshops, but now only for fun reasons. 🙂
