How did you get into mountainbiking? I was fully into bmx, as I heard about offroad bikes with gears. I havn´t seen one of those bikes in a bike shop till that day, so I just took the first one I found. It was a heavy as hell Thunderbird with a one-piece bar-stem construction.

What kind of bikes do you have in use? Hey, I am a owner of a bike brand. I can´t name them all, but my favoutite ones are my dirt jumping bike, the klunker and my endure bike of course.

Best place to ride your bike? I really liked Moab a lot.

Which destination is standing on your to do list for the future? Tasmania

Which music fits best for riding? It depends on what you ride, but CCR fits most.

Favoutite Race: I don´t really compete any more, but my last race was a cyclocross race in 2019.

Who would you like to take for a ride? Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of the Bitcoin.

What is the best, after a long day of riding? I love BBQ´s or maybe a hanging mattress would be a good opportunity as well.

Other activities beside biking? Defently surfing. I would love to live on the ocean. But I lthough like longboarding, snowboarding and we have this table tennis plate on our dirt jumping spot, we often play.

Where do you see yourself in 30 years? Ohh man, by that time I will be 80. What should I say. I hopefully still cruise around and watch the young guns catching some air on the local dirt jumps.
