I would like to introduce the 2009 team because we have got some very unique riders. But first, I would like to say THANK YOU for the 2008 season! You were an awesome team and all of you achieved huge goals that everybody at Unicon 14 saw because luckily all 10 members of the 2008 team were able to take part. The 15 gold, 14 silver and 8 bronze medals speak for itself, especially because 3 of the gold, 5 of the silver and 3 of the bronze medals were expert trophies! I won’t recount all of the endless number of national achievements all the riders had, but you can read about all of that information at the teams homepage. Hats off! All of you were fantastic! Now lets take a look at the new team for 2009 which still includes 10 of the riders that were so successful in 2006/07/08. These riders are: Darja Schlote (Germany), Galina Ryom-Røjbek (Denmark), Julia Doktorczyk (Germany), Luna Martin (Denmark), Maria Wegscheider (Austria), Nikolaj Moestrup (Denmark), Daniel Adelander (Sweden), Elliot Hofman (France), Raphael Pöham (Austria), Johann3s Burger (Germany). For 2009 we happily welcome Isaac Steiner (Canada), Elias Pöham (Austria) and our Special Guests: Adrien Delecroix (France) und Joe Hodges (England). I think that these are all really exciting new riders This is also the time send a very big THANK YOU to our two main Sponsors: apex systeme and municycl.com. Without them nothing would be possible! I would also like to say thank you to our Co-Sponsors in Denmark and Canada, Unisalg.dk and Bedford Unicycles Also we would like to thank Kris Holm Unicycles and QU-AX. They must be mentioned here because they have always bees trusted partners in the background of the team! It was and will be a pleasure to work with all of you and I’m looking forward to an exciting Uni year of 2009. Olaf team unicycle.tv
Congrats guys! Can’t wait to try again next year:D
if i want to try for 2010 or maybe get in 2009 if thats possible when do i send in a request or whatever?
I want to congratulate all the members of the team but especially you for all the work you do to help promote the sport of unicycling and for motivating so many riders with the creation of this team. I think it would be a good idea if in the future you could have more riders from other countries outside Europe so this would be a more international team. These days the sport of unicycling is growing rapidly worldwide and that’s a great way to motivate them to continue to improve and, of course, to make more videos!!!
Keep on the good work!
A tip: never work for the sponsors. Work for yourself!
Olaf is the UTV Team Managaer and also a forum user. If you want to get sponsor from UTV or not, first promote yourself!
Create an image, get popular, go to convetions, works for the community, don’t take a bad behavior.
The sponsors are always around the forums searching for people who fits the team!
Kris wrote a nice article about that in last Uni Magazine. If you want to work hard to get a sponsor, you should read that!
Also, Congratulations for such nice team Olaf! You’re doing a lot for our sport in UTV and also EUC! Keep you work and I’m sure that we will see great things in a nearly future!
Hey thanks Pedro! Ill keep working towards that!
i hope i`m gonna see many of you at WuKo
