The freeriding Aline Bock

Falling apart, and falling together 

She’s brave and daring and charming. Very charming. And she tells me with a smile, a wonderful, winning smile about her last serious injury. Very serious. Not the one where she bit off her tongue. Not the one where she shattered her wrist. No – this was the one where she was lying there in the snow and ice, thinking that it was very likely that she was paralysed from the waist down: “Somebody had told me what it feels like – and that was precisely how it felt. So, of course, I was worried.” Luckily, it wasn’t quite that bad. This is Aline Bock, snowboard freerider, and my latest guest on Talking Germany.

Aline Bock’s favourite movie

Aline Bock, tells with me, with disarming charm, about how she regularly risks her life by piling down mountains – on a snowboard – at angles of up to 55 degrees. So perhaps it’s not surprising that she chooses a movie called The Game. I’d never heard of it. Michael Douglas is the star, and, if I understand Aline correctly, the character he plays gets an allmighty come-uppance.
