My best memory stay at Lenzerheide World Cup in 2018, amazing feeling on track and best result with 8th place in final.

 You crash your bike and can only salvage one thing from it what would it be and why? 

My Suspensions, because the new set up is amazing and I’m so stoked with the perfect setting right now.

Giving those Vee Tires a good testing.

If you could only ride one trail for the rest of your days

Everyone wants to improve, right? What would you like to do better?  

I would like to be better on my technical skills ! I dream to make a back flip on the ground.

Rear tire because I love drifting.

I’m working hard with the Brigade at the moment to show what we are able to ! I would like to have strong results during the WC season with regular top 20 and it will be sick to be back on top 10 !

Is this the secret junior? Hmm maybe not.
