O’NEAL’s female FMX rider Emma McFerran celebrated her first ever podium and Rookie Christian Kleiner took home 2nd place at the Flight Club Contest in Biberach, Germany.
Emma: “Flight Club Biberach turned out to be an awesome day. When we arrived it wasn’t looking to good as it had been raining most of the night and didn’t look like it was going to stop any time soon. I ended heading into town and going shopping with Hannes and Luc’s parents while I waited for the rain to stop haha. After lunch it finally cleared up and we all ended up having a great ride! The run up was a little slippery for me on my 250f but after a few jumps I felt super comfy and the guys couldn’t stop me from riding. The event went great and I was happy with how I rode, finishing up in 3rd place with my first FMX podium. I also learnt 1 Hand Seatgrab Indy’s which I was super stoked about!”
Christian: “When we arrived in Biberach it was raining. Unfortunately the weather forecast wasn’t that well. We used the rainy hours to chat with old friends and hanging around in the paddock. After lunch, the rain stopped and the sky cleared up. Finally we could start with the training. The setup in Biberach was really nice. The landing was really huge and made me feel safe on my 350sxf. After a great Jam I finished the Competition in second place.”
Hannes: “The Flight Club in Biberach was an awesome event as every year. The day started of with some rain but after lunch it turned out good so we could ride. I didn’t join the competition but had a lot of fun riding with everyone. We had an international riders field this year and my O’NEAL teammates Christian Kleiner and Emma Mcferran placed 2nd and 3rd. Just a good day of riding!”
