What is your proudest sporting achievement?

To win the WTS Hamburg race as well as the team World Champs on the next day in front of home crowd.

What is your proudest non-sporting achievement?

At the age of three years when I rode my bike the first time without stabilizing wheels. I was so proud and felt like the king of the world (and probably crashed after realizing it!)

What do you enjoy most about riding bikes?

I love exploring beautiful places all over the world. I also love the sound of a new bike (it gives me goosebumps!)

What do you find most challenging about riding bikes?

Car drivers, who miscalculate how fast cyclists are going and cut you off.

What are your goals this year?

I want to change the color of my World Championship medals from last year and improve my performance in general.
