I started riding bikes when 15 years old, just for fun, when I did 2nd place at the nationals – almost 3 years ago, I started to get serious about it, and training. Nowadays, I have good sponsors with me, and I’m a professional athlete. I like to ride enduro and downhill, crossfit and I have a good physiotherapist with me… My favorite place to ride is Whislter.
