Matching Mountainbiking and Alpinism, my passion doesn't fit into disciplines like Enduro or Freeride. I call it Bike-Mountaineering! It is is all about pioneering summits and alpine trails, redefining what is considered rideable and sharing great adventures with friends.
My favorite runs are steep, exposed and tricky, since nobody thought about the use of bicycles when they were set up centuries ago for hunters, smugglers and soldiers. Riding them on a Mountainbike requires creativity, riding skills and humility - which can't be learned in bikeparks.
As an athlete I don't compete against others - I ride with them instead. I love sharing my adventures in magazine-storys, online films and multimedia lectures.
