I started my career as a mountainbiker back in 2002. At that time I only took part in small local races. It was not long until I achieved my first win on my 13 kg (29Ibs) heavy bike. From this point, nothing could stop me. The fascination of mountain biking has drawn me into its spell.
I grew up in the heart of the Alps, in the region of Tyrol, with 2 brothers, me in the middle. It has always been my dream to become a professional athlete, but my talent did not seem to be promising. It took me until the age of 8years to learn how to even ride a bike. Nobody would have believed that I would compete against the world’s best a few years later.
It has always been fun and a pleasure to ride bikes with my friends! I got to know people all over the globe, visited places most people will never get to see and all that just because of mountain biking. That’s why every day out on the bike is a gift!

I have the vision in mind to just take my bike and tour across the alps just me my bike and a few little things and of course enjoy the best coffees out there.
