Basically, I go biking in summer and skiing in winter. But I love a lot of other outdoor sports such as climbing or hiking. Apart from sports, I like knitting, travelling and reading.
I am an active and creative person, I love outdoor sports and being with my friends.
My parents put me on skis when I was 2 and I started racing alpine ski quite early. Even after I quit racing as a professional skier, I participated in lots of amateur-races, especially for students and athletes who were not on any national team or fully sponsored. I used to spend a lot of time on the road bike in summer in order to stay fit. At one point I was fed up with those boring roads and so I started having fun on single trails. This was one of my best decisions...! (Another good decision was to leave alpine races and start freeskiing, but that's another story...)
Since 2010, I have loved riding with friends, especially around Innsbruck, where I live at the moment. I was surprised to realize how many girls are riding mountain bikes nowadays and I am happy to see their number increase every season.
I started biking when I was a child, like many of us... At the age of 14, I started racing cross-country and marathon. I have also been riding enduro and downhill since 2010.What does biking mean to you personally?
It’s a kind of freedom, from enjoying the silence that surrounds you on enduro tours to hanging out with friends and spending time together.What aspect of biking thrills you the most?
I like flow and speed and technical sections I have to try several times before I know how to ride them properly. I enjoy riding with my friends, having fun and being in nature with amazing landscapes all around.How do you manage to combine family/friends and job?
I usually take my family and friends with me when I go for a ride. To combine biking and knitting, I recommend to knit in the gondola or in the bike shuttle!Please answer with one word only:
What do you like about SCOTT?
Their product range offers basically everything for every kind of need. They have high end bikes and quality stuff.What are your favorite SCOTT products?
I love the bikes, which are also good for lighter and smaller women (I am a good example for this, as I am 150cm tall!). I like the bikewear too: comfortable and functional at the same time!What SCOTT products are you using this year?
I am riding a Genius 650B and wearing the bike women’s line.People you feel you need to thank:
I would like to thank my family for helping me getting were I am now, my friends for sharing unforgettable outdoor experiences and of course the SCOTT family for supporting me and having fun together.
