"Hey guys, I‘m Frigyes Stupek and this is not a story with a happy end - but it’s not over yet. I really wanted to do a banger for OGBS‘ (the distro I ride for) upcoming team video, inspired by Randy Taylor and Anthony Perrin. I thought I could tailwhip the huge set of stairs at Clark Ádám square which seemed to work until I landed the trick.
So many pro riders from all over the world came to Hungary this year. They just showed up at our spots and did all sorts of crazy stuff, making me more motivated than ever.
I had told my parents about my plan before I went for it so they could prepare to hear any bad news about me. My father drove to the spot one day and checked out the spot himself. He came to see me in my room that night and said „Hey son! I just checked your spot. There is a curb close of the stairs but other than that the run up is alright. I want you to know that I wouldn‘t recommend going for it it even though it‘s possible.“ If my father said it was possible, it’s possible, haha!
After the crash I felt easy. I went for it, it worked even if I crashed, I survived. I wanted to give it another try but as I landed the trick with my right foot on the crank arm my foot got all the impact of the landing and one of my metatarsal bones snapped.
If you guys take my advice you’ll learn from my mistake. Unlike me, you should try a tricks like this step by step. Next year I’ll find some smaller sets of stairs (like 15, 16 and 18) just to get more ready for this big boy and I’m gonna land it! Expect a new video without any crashes!"
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
