How and when did you start biking?
My dad and my brother have always ridden bikes and when we (my mum, my little sister and me) went to cheer them on competitions or follow them on a tour, I used to take my own bike too. Soon, I also wanted to race. I started at the age of 5 and I used to win all the time, even against the boys. This was really motivating! Moreover, the meeting point of the local MTB-club was just in front of the house. So every Wednesday, I used to put on my biking gear and meet the guys across the road, hoping they would allow me to come and ride with them. But they kept telling me I was too young. Eventually, my determination paid off and they accepted me for the lesson. I managed to keep up the pace the whole lesson and was not even last!Who were/are your idols on and off the trails?
Greg Minaar on downhill because I like his riding style and his mentality. He is an open-minded rider who shares his experience with others.What does biking mean to you personally?
Biking is my passion. I have fun with my friends and at the same time I can discover regions and countries.What aspect of biking thrills you the most?
I love the friendly spirit in enduro biking: we are all mates during the climbs but competitors when it comes to specials! Otherwise, I love steep and technical trails: I like fine riding.How do you manage to combine family/friends and job?
It is true that it is sometimes hard to manage everything at the same time but it is actually just a matter of organization! During the week, I train when I have a bit of time and during the weekend I dedicate half a day to training and the rest is for family and friends.Please answer with one word only:
