The Busty Wolter Column
written by Sebastian Wolter



After some time of laziness ... aehm, I mean relaxing ... it is time for my first newsletter of the year. After I got home on the 23rd of December it was time to refill my batteries and leave the bike in the garage. My body needed more than 2 weeks of relaxation to regain it’s full energy load.

But the good thing about it is: now I am ready to go wide open again!
My FMX year started with the SX in Dortmund, which is one of the biggest in Germany and as usual one of the highlights all year long. The FMX show was starring a couple of good riders, namely Mike Mason and Adam Jones (there we have 2 of 3 X Games medalists), viceworldchampion (wow, what a title) Libor Podmol, Fab Bauersachs, Jimmy Verburgh and myself (no important FMX titles in 2006). The crowd went nuts on all three days and it was hard to hear our engines since they were cheering us on so loud.

In Dortmund I signed a new deal and I will be wearing Fox gear, helmets and boots from now on. A big thank you goes out for all the great support in the past to Shoei, Alpinestars and Oakley (but I will go on wearing the bling bling Oakley goggles). THANKS!

Since awards and pricegivings are much needed, the FMX Awards got installed. So please go to and vote for me, I could need some more voices in Germanys best FMX athlete category.

In the meantime I have started my own Myspace website, so check out and add me as a friend. Tomorrow I will leave for a 3-week long trip to New Zealand. First I will hang out and practice at Nick Franklins place, then I will compete at the Vodafone X Air,one of the biggest freestylesports contests in over there. Let’s see how I can handle being upside down on the other side of the world...

Ride on!
