How long you have been with WTB: First Year

Age: 27

Discipline: Enduro

Hometown: Flims, Switzerland

Favorite place to ride: Whistler, Canada

Fun fact: Had to walk around with one of my front teeth missing for half a year, after I lost it because of a crash with my bike... Pretty awkward for a girl... ;-) 

How WTB contributes to your success? WTB provides me fast rolling tires and almost endless grip that enables me to go as fast as I can on my bike. And the comfy saddles help a lot with tackling hours of climbing too! 

How you got started out competing? Kind of straight away after I bought my first proper Mountain bike. First I competed in downhill races for several years and  as I began to enjoyed climbing mountains more and more I discovered Enduro Races. From the first Enduro Race experience I knew this is the format which suits my strengths the best and provides the most fun on a bike. Adventure always included.

First experience with a bike: We used to have a BMX when we were kids and our brother, my sister and me always did stunts with it and tried to fit the three of us at the same time on the bike. I think in the end it broke exactly because of this. 

Who do you look up to? I look up to passionate people that live their dream and pursue their goals. 

Other activities(off the bike): all kinds of outdoor sports... I really like skiing, snowboarding, 

Beverage of Choice: I'm a total coffee addict. And I like beer too.

Place you have always wanted to ride: There is still quite a few places on the bucket list. My all time favorite is still BC Canada tough.
