Axel European Champion on street and miniramp

Aug 11 2009 / Tuesday

Axel winning ESC 2009

etnies would like to congratulate Axel Cruysberghs with his European Championship title on street and miniramp. As we are used from Axel he was skating hard all weekend focusing on putting down some solid runs, which he did!
Check out this video of his final runs on miniramp and street!

The last few months Axel has been skating contests a lot! A few weeks back he came fourth on the AmsterdDamn Am in Holland. Before that he ended up third at the King of Wood in Rouen, France and in May he came in second at the Adidas Clash in Berlin, Germany.
And lets not forget Axel winning the Simple Session in Estonia in January this year!

We talked a bit with Axel after he won the two ESC titles, check it out:

Axel, congratulations with winning the etnies ESC Street contest and the etnies ESC Miniramp contest!
How does it feel to win two European titles in one day?

To be honest it’s a bit of strange feeling. To win one ESC title is already unbelievable but tow in TWO! It’s a super good feeling!

Were you surprised you won both contests?
Yes, because I was certainly not thinking of winning.

How do you prepare yourself for contests like this?
I just skate a lot with my friends, but actually I don’t do anything specials.

When you skate you make it look so easy as if it does not cost you any effort, do you plan your run before you skate?
Before the contest I normally think of five tricks I can start with and after that I just do whatever I come up with.

What is the next contest you are going to enter?
Next contest is already this weekend, the Antwerp Skatecontest in Belgium.

Thanks for your time Axel, want to thank anybody?
I would like to thank all of my sponsors; etnies, Volcom, Flip, Red Bull, Bones Wheels and Bearings en also my parents, brother, sister, grandparents and everybody I forgot!

  2. I'm amazed by this kid!

    How cool is it to win both Street AND Miniramp... just crazy.

    Only 14 years old, skatin' like a he's been doing it for ever.

    When I was 14... well, it was a lot different back then :-)

    CONGRATULATIONS, Axel, I hope you stay healthy and keep on skating.

    Greetings from Basel, the home of the ESC.
