about me

When did I start riding?

At the age of 5 I started riding a Yamaha PW 50. It was absolutely awesome, and I was hooked. I continue daily to advance my riding skills.

What fascinated me most as I rode my bike the first time?

I grew up around the motocross tracks. My dad and grandfather were already passionate moto bikers and racers. My father is now 57 years of age, and we still race some national races at the senior level. In a nutshell I grew up in a motocross family and have carried the passion into my generation.

Why did I change from racing to freestyle motocross?

I was 23 and it was my second year in the European championship. It was a tricky racing year for me already. In my first race of the season, I crashed 100 meters from the starting gate, badly dislocating my knee. My season was over… This caused a lot of frustration having worked so hard, only to have no season at all. Not only was I injured I also fell into depression.

That was it! I decided to quit and get out of racing even though I had no idea what to else I was going to do. I just knew I didn’t want to professionally race anymore.  I restored my dirt bike in my living room as a memory of my racing days.

About eleven months after leaving racing a longtime sponsor “ProGrip” called me. They asked if I would come out of retirement for a weekend to perform some freestyle riding ramps. I agreed and became very excited knowing it would be my first time jumping a sixteen-meter gap and landing without dirt and no airbags. I remember standing in front of that ramp with a 250cc 2-stroke KTM bike and feeling real fear for the first time. I took that adrenalin and used it to successfully jump those sixteen meters. I was just so pumped. In that moment my life changed and a new chapter had begun. Riding freestyle motocross changed everything and I was delighted to get up every day to ride my bike. That feeling and those vibes I love share with you at my shows and events.

What does fascinate me the most?

To be free…! To be free from all the day-to-day bullshit. To do whatever you want, to really feel it and enjoy. Just you and your bike!

How to transfer the enthusiasm and inspiration to the people around me…

I look forward getting up every day and just love what I do! Riding freestyle has changed my life. I know that if it doesn’t work the first time, I can do it again differently. Just keep going with passion and you will get it right. In the end it is all about how you feel. In your heart and in your head.

Good vibes are what I try to spread around.

When you are positive about your own life it becomes easy to inspire others to be the best they can be. I am passionate to share my love of motocross with people.

How I keep myself healthy and in shape?

As a professional athlete it is so important to have your body and mind in good shape. That is exactly what I found with TALENTWERK. I am in close contact with my coach Dennis Schäfer who I can speak to about my physical and emotional ups and downs when we have our weekly on-line coaching sessions. Dennis strives for my continued improvement and sets out a plan of development to enable me to reach next level and obtain my goals in life. Everything is analysed using performance technology and

I can feel progress in my fitness and emotional wellbeing day by day.

My on-line session with Dennis allows me access to coaching not matter where I am in the world. In the event that I cannot participate in a session they are recorded, and I am able to catch up later. Dennis and TALENTWERK enable me to continuously develop to a high standard and I am feeling stronger and healthier than ever before.
