And on Friday, March 27th, the next installment of GameStage@AEC is on tap. From 6PM to 12 Midnight, computer gaming enthusiasts are invited to immerse themselves in the world of character design, find out more about innovative control concepts in computer games, and get hands-on experience with a few fascinating games. Admission is free of charge.
Dominik Raab is a professional street trials and mountain biker. Born 1985 in Linz/Austria, Raab found his passion for the sport of mountain biking around 1997. In 2003 he won the Austrian State Champion title in the discipline of trials biking. Today, the Upper Austrian is one of the best and most popular trials bikers in the world. Touring the globe under the flag of bicycle manufacturer “Merida Bikes” Dominik Raab keeps the crowd entertained performing his one-of-a-kind feats, doing trials demos, photo and video shootings. With the “Dominik Raab Mountain Bike Trials Show” the cyclist is an entertainer on two wheels at over 100 days a year to show off his skills in the context of sporting events, product launches or corporate events. Among the highlights are performances in China, Taiwan and the USA.
