Tell us about your hometown, how you grew up, who influenced you, and what shaped your life the most.
Boppard is the place where I grew with a small bike park that I have been taking care of since I started riding mountain bikes. So building and designing my own jumps always had a big influence on my riding. So I did not really focus on one discipline.
Have any advice or words of wisdom for up-and-coming riders?
Just go out there as often as possible and enjoy what you love the most.
Favorite part of being a Pro rider?
The variety of my sport. There are five different bikes sitting in my garage and I always can pick a different one for another way of riding. Also love being in the nature. It just never gets boring for me...
Ultimate riding trip?
A few buddies, good riding spots and one week on somewhere where it's warm with new jumps and lots of cold beer.
What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
Just turning pro and being one of the best for years now who can make a living with his sport. Always gotta remind sometimes how sick my life is.
What is on your plate at your last meal on earth and who is around your table?
Surely my parents if they're still alive and my closest friends... And if this is my last meal I would go for the most unhealthy burgers you could get....haha
