How long you have been with WTB: First Year

Age: 27

Discipline: Enduro

Hometown: Falera, Switzerland

Favorite place to ride: I love to ride in my home resort Flims. we have a great variety of trails here., from high alpine to Mediterranean style trails there is everything. And it’s always great to be back home and ride with friends.

Fun fact: It was my second MTB race ever and I fell down backwards from the start ramp in the attempt to ride it up, like most of the guys did. FAIL!! ;-)

How WTB contributes to your success? No matter what weather or riding terrain WTB provides me with tires for any riding condition.

How you got started out competing? Kind of straight away after Caro and me bought our first bikes. It just seemed like a lot of fun, so we got hooked on racing.

First experience with a bike: Back in the days my bike was only a transportation method, but even then I had to ride fast a lot, because I was always running late and had to make up time.

Who do you look up to? All those who are brave enough to step out and follow their dream.

Other activities(off the bike): Snowboarding, Skiing, Skitouring all kinds of winter sports. Cooking and baking for my friends

Beverage of Choice: Nothing beats a Radler after a good ride in the sun.

Place you have always wanted to ride: New Zealand
