Name: My name is Rayk Hahne.
Age: I’m 23 years old.
Sex: Male as you can see.
Location: I’m from Neubrandenburg, but because of my studying my domicile (home) changes every 10 weeks between Kiel and Hamburg. During my apprenticeship I lived 4 years in Rostock. It also became a hometown for me.
When did you start riding?
I started riding small bikes in 2005 with a WTP Dare Devil. I started riding Street first but I decided early that Flatland is any better for me to express myself.
How often do you ride?
I try to ride 4 or 5 times a week but it depends on my work schedule.
Do you ride contests? If yes, what has been your biggest success?
I love contests. You meet a lot of friends and can get in touch with new riders. My biggest success has been the qualification at the Worlds with the 4th place and the first places at the Field Control and Flatland Fanatics 2010
Where do you ride? – Your Spot(s)
I got a couple of spots in every city, almost one for every weather situation. Check my videos to get an overview.
Can you tell us a bit about the riding scene in your town?
In every city are riders of course but because of my working time I often have to ride on my own. If I can get in touch with the other guys, then only with 1 or 2 in every city (except Hamburg). We enjoy our time and I support them in their development.
Imagine you could make a flatland world tour, which 5 places would you like to visit for riding and why?
Japan (it’s clear why), USA (I love the attitude of the people there), Finland (these guys are fun and Martti would be a perfect coach for me), Spain (there is sun and the scene with Guelo and Moya is very inspiring), Germany (visit all the German guys and share a good time).
Is there a goal you would like to reach concerning your riding?
I see my aims in riding more in an inspirational way then in a strict career. It’s a big aim to sensitise people to more self-creation in their lives by showing them my way of self-fulfilment. I love to share the feeling of exploring new ways of movement and to receive emotions by people exploring their bodies in action, not only with bikes in every way.
