Getting away from daily life I do best while mountainbiking. On my bike I enjoy the excitement of action and adventure in the greatest natural environments.

At Le Hohneck looking down into the valley of Munster, Vosges, France.

Biking above 2000m towards Langkofel in the Dolomites in the Italian Alps.

My bike has evolved over the past ten years to what is now my perfect 'work horse' of only 9,5kg. Lots of carbon, my favourite material, and only the finest components:

Giant MCM Team frame, the carbon top frame of Giant around 10 years ago, and Mavic CrossMax SL wheels.

Ritchey WCS handle bar, stem and seat post            Rock Shox SID Worldcup fork with remote lockout

Shimano XTR crankset, V-brakes and Derailleur group

And of course my stuff for measurements and navigation
