What do you espec­ial­ly pre­fer in Kalas Rye Bike­fes­ti­val?

I like Rye Bike­fes­ti­val becau­se it is a race in pure natu­ral sur­round­ings and for sure with ama­zing trails.

What part of the cour­se  do you pre­fer ?

That’s a dif­fi­cult question…but the rocky parts in the short tra­ck are a real chal­len­ge in eve­ry lap.

When did you start your acti­ve moun­tain biking care­er and what was it that  trigged you to start?

The natu­re and the chal­len­ge to ride fast.

What is your most impor­tant goal for the sea­son 2019?

Top 20 in World Cup, Natio­nal champion and col­lecting points for The Olym­pics.

Which per­son would you like to chal­len­ge to race at the Rye Bike­fes­ti­val this year? Why?

Vlad Das­calu, my team mate last year. He real­ly enjoys trails like the ones in Kalas Rye Bike­fes­ti­val.
