Fans of bike sports will immediately recognize these tricks. Why? Because they were all done for the first time in the world by one person. Meet their author – Szymon Godziek leading MTB freestyle rider in the world. We had the opportunity to meet him at the Dirt Picnic Suszec party organized by his brother David. That’s what came out of it. hi, we are in Suszec on Dirt Picnic Suszec. In Godziek brothers garden. And we met the elder of the brothers the “Shaman”. Hi, Szymon. Hi Tell me, let’s start with that. Do you ever feel any fear? I do. Every time I was standing upthere today. Although it was not a competition and I ride just like this so I fear sometimes. Maybe it’s not fear, this is not a mental blockade, but that’s the adrenaline rush which I like and I like when I make the tricks later, and I land it nicely ląduje go fajnie i the adrenaline is so good. With satisfaction.. Okay, if you tell me you’re scared here every time So what would you say about your backflip over the horse from 23 meters bump. Ooh. I was scared there too. I was scared, but I thought it was such a bargain to go there, to be there somehow and nothing will happen to me, becouse backflip is a backflip I had speed calculated and I’ve made it. Ok. Maybe you will tell us a bit more about that event because it is very interesting competition, if we talking about Red Bulla. You mean downhill and the tricks, right? Yes exactly. It’s about freeride. We get there. ten days before finals. the whole mountain is for us, they give us only start and finish. And we can bild whatever we want. We have to do this, using only a pick and a shovel. And it’s a bit hard, it’s very hot in there, no water, we have to drag the water all the way up. And everything they build there it’s really hard work. From dusk till down. There’s a lot of tests And first of all, you go there and spend the whole day at the top thinking about your line. If you think about something You have to built it, ride and ride it again in the competition. But it gives you freedom, that you don’t have a designated route you think about it yourself, your tricks, your bumps Yes. That’s the best in that competition, that you can do there whatever you want and that’s the best place to do this. The soil is great, easy to pick to drag down you can do whatever you want in that rock, mountaian Any plans, for someting for the first time in the world will you do antything else this year, so so it is triple, round triple. Maybe. Maybe I would do something on the road bike, cuz I’m bit on iy now. It was good light on it, and I don’t know, Were there previous trials on the road bike, coming back to that Were there previous trials to land on hardtop on the road bike? Or? – Yes. – There were. This was generally the first backflip I thonk about that now, in the world, on road bike But first time on a such a huge event like the Tour de Pologne It’s like It’s like I think, I’m not looking for something, to write aobut that later that, ooo I did it for the first time in the world The ideas just come to me, which I like, I want to do and when I do that, I’m over the moon. And later it turns out that it was the first time in the world. And that’s the best. Your garden is great, got place to train. Are you stationed here on a daily basis? No. I don’t live here for six years. Dawid is taking care of that garden. He trains here a lot. I live close to Wrocław, where I have a bit bigger obstacles BMX i MTB, slopstyle They differ a little from each other. On BMX they fly on bumps, size like that, they have on this competition. Although they should have them as big as we have, cuz they were good on it. Only from organization way there’s somethng wrong on BMX, but we have bigger obstacles, we have drops I’ve found my playground there, where I do whatever I like where I build my line and you can see this on my new material on redbull.com /bike we know where, we found that movie for sure we will link it under that interview, so you will see it underneath cuz that a really cool movie. That 2 minutes movie yes yes yes. That’s my new playground, where I live with my wife and a kid, and I train, I’ve got a few, actually a lot of plans and not enough time. – As usual, like everybody. Any plans for next year? maybe something, like jump over Tour de Pologne, do you have any plans for next year? What to see, where to see you? I don’t have such a plans, I don’t have such a plans yet, although Next year I will focus more on, that most important competitions, for 100%, I was third this year, after the last event on tour. and I would like to improve it, for sure, when I still feel good in slopestyle in the tricks and the time is ticking and the back is tired too, But I would like to go and ride on freeride OK, so next year more on freeride? Yes. On mountain bike, with full suspension Do you think, there will be material from thah on Red Bull? Maybe, we are in the process of arranging it the whole next year and we will see, what, where the filming will take place for sure it will be Utah again and for sure I would like to try, to go back on Red Bulla Rampage next year That’s these are two main goals.
