I’m back home from my last competition for this season. The competition was held in Liepaja, Latvia and were combined with the Latvian Rally Kurzeme speed weekend. I did the trip together with Joona Vatanen, Jussi Koivulampi and my girlfriend Pauliina. We had to drive about 1000km each way so it were a long trip but totally worth it.
We were competing against the best stuntriders in the North Europe so it were a really tough competition overthere. A good thing about this competition were that the judges liked speed & danger and that’s suites me and Joona perfectly. The bad thing about it was that the surface on the competing are were flagstone and not asphalt which means bad & rough grip.
i rode much better than in the Poland Stuntgp so I’m satisfied with my competition this time. I made it to the Final and ended up in 10th place.
Joona did even better and ended up in second place even if he did a huge stoppie crash in the finals. He did also get first place in the wheelie race and price money for the best crash. Congratulations Joona!
Good weekend and good and of the competitions of the year. See you all again next year, and then we’ll go even Bigger, better % louder!
I was so pissed off about my run in the Poland StungGP so I thought that I would never share this video. But today I’m in better mood so here you got it. My qualifying run in World stunt grand prix 2013.
I got a call today and I will do a show this sunday! The show will be in Seinäjoki at “Vauhtiajot” which is a big yearly car and race festival and there is always a lot of visitors. I will do the show together with crazy drivers! See you there!

I’ve not been posting in a while because we’ve been on a trip around in Europe. But now we are all back home and back in business. We started our trip from Finland(of course) and went by ferry to Estonia, and then travelled trough Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to Poland by car. The trip took us about 35 hours and were really tough because we just stopped for gas tanking and some fast lunch breaks.
We stayed in Poland for four days and me and Joona Vatanen competed in the PLUS STUNT GRAND PRIX of Poland.
70 elite riders from all over the world competed in the competition and I can tell you that the level were very high.
The qualification run were on friday and everyone tried their best to get to the semi-final were the 30 best will fight for the final positions.
I thought that it would be a peace of cake to get to the semi final because I’ve been practising alot this season. But when I went out to competition area I started to struggle. I tried to ride faster than I was able to and struggled even with the easiest tricks. I hadn’t been pracising my 3 minutes competition run so I got stressed of the clock and my run was really bad. I even crashed in the wall once so my points did’nt reach to semi finals.
I was of course a bit sad because I use to ride better during practise and shows, but now I had more time to support and follow Joona trough the
Joona did ride very well in the competition and got the amazing position as a 4th place in the competition. Congrats Joona!
After stuntgp travelled to Latvia and stayed at Janis Rozitis place in Riga for a few days. We did a practise session with Janis and did even ride a show with him at a event called ghetto games. Then we just rested and had a good time and enjoyed our vacation. Thank you Janis for letting us stay at your house!
I found some material from my show at RE Motors during Duell Days a few weeks ago. I sat down and did a small edit for you, hope you like it!
You can watch this video as long as I’m away. I’ll travel to Poland tomorrow and compete in the Plus Stunt Grand Prix (World Championship) in Bydgoscz.
Enjoy the video:
I did also ride some shows yesterday!
Korsnäs Street Race was a great event! I really enjoyed the day out there and I’m satisfied with my own perfomance! I was a bit scared in the beginning because I did my show on a normal road, but I think it went very well altough. I also tested some dragracing and my Kawasaki showed the people that the 636 have a lot of power. I did even win a Hayabusa twice in the drag race, and that tells a lot!!
Yes, I’ll be competing in Stunt GP again this summer. The competition is in the first week of July and It will be an awesome week! StuntGP is just getting bigger and bigger each year and the leves is getting just higher! It will be very hard to fight against the worlds top riders but I will do my best and I’ll try to get to the finals! Wish me all the best and follow the competition on facebook. I think that ITV24 will send the competition live on internet and I’ll give you the link as soon as I get it!
After a hard weekend it’s good to do some service. Today I did my first oil change on the new Kawasaki and gave her Bel-Ray Exs 10W-50 racing oil and a K&N oil filter. She also got a brand new Pirelli Diablo for this weeks practise sessions. Look how nice and pretty she is after service and cleaning!
