How and when did you start biking?
I started slowly in 2001, at first on a hardtail riding up and down on gravel paths. In 2004, I went to La Palma in order to work there as a bike guide. During my stay there, I really developed my passion for downhill and also had the chance to meet Karen and Holger from “Die Rasenmäher” (Karen Eller, Contessa Teammate). I have been a member of the SCOTT Contessa Team since 2006.What does biking mean to you personally?
Freedom, enjoying life and having fun.What aspect of biking thrills you the most?
I love riding downhill on tricky technical sections. You don’t master such trails with speed but with good technical skills, concentration and a good line choice.
