Peter Henke lives in Ingelheim, Germany, and is one of the young and talented riders to look out. He has been circling the FMB World Tour scene for years now but 2013 was a breakthrough year for the German rider: After his top ten results at Vienna Air King (Vienna, AUT), King of Dirt (Riva, ITA) and Red Bull Berg Line (Winterberg, GER) he started in Munich as the first and only German MTB rider at the legendary X Games and ended up as one of the best ten riders.
Shortly afterwards, at Colorado Freeride Festival (Winter Park, USA), he celebrated his first spot on the podium at a FMB World Tour Gold event: thanks to an impressive second final run featuring a double backflip, he came shy of only Martin Soderstrom, a more than worthy rival. Further invitations to the top events of the year, Red Bull Joyride (Whistler, CAN) and Red Bull Rampage (Utah, USA) followed which he couldn’t attend due to an injury.
To keep his performance curve growing as steeply as 2013, Pete’s preparations are centered around his new compound in his hometown Ingelheim: with diggers and plenty of earth, he is working on the perfect jumps for a personal training ground. Additionally the Canyon team rider was working on several filming projects in 2014.

The Thermal flight Plus lets you at least half an hour to see the world from above. In strong thermals and sometimes turbulent air you feel the enormous strength of updrafts, so you and your tandem pilot can in good conditions drive over the top of the mountains.
Sometimes you can go even higher along with your tandem pilot, close to the clouds. These tandem flights operate mainly in the spring and early summer.
Please note: The strongest thermals for these flights are in the months of March to August. In other seasons, the pilot can achieve very long flight times only on certain days. The advantage in the late summer and fall: The air is perfectly calm – soaring and gliding!
Please ask your tandem flight pilot on the spot about filming and photography, he can best assess the situation on the ground.
After about 30-60 minutes you begin with the landing. After this experience you will be full of impressions. Many images and feelings often come to mind days later…
