When her family thinks back to Sina’s first athletic endeavors as a child, nobody would have ever been able to guess that she would end up being a mountain bike athlete. When she was a young girl, Sina was taken with typical girl sports – ballet and gymnastics. “After a while, my brother took me with him to his soccer practices and I really liked the contrast.” It wasn’t until she turned 12 that the young Swiss discovered her sport, her passion – mountain biking. “Exercising outdoors experiencing nature, constantly learning new things and challenging each other – that’s what I just love about this sport.”

 

A short while later, Sina wasn’t content anymore to just bike by herself” I remember my first race very well. What I worried about most was that my endurance wouldn’t be good enough and that I would not be able to finish the race. I ended up being last, but still was very content with my performance.” Over the years, she built up her endurance and her success followed.

 

The three-time Swiss Champion title in MTB, Road and CycloCross, and the Bronze European Youth Championship Medal in Graz are just highlights of her successful Youth career. After graduating from school, Sina wanted to focus more on her MTB sport, but also her professional future and finished an apprenticeship.

When she competed in the U19 age bracket, she didn’t have to wait very long for her first successful accomplishments. Sina won the European Championship title and the Bronze medal at the World Championships in Hafjell. After the switch to the U23 age bracket, Sina continued her success right away: “In 2016, I took that big step into U23 and promptly became the youngest overall World Cup winner of all time, European Champion, World Champion runner-up and I also won the Bronze Medal at the Team Relay World Championships.” One year later – after finishing her apprenticeship – she was able to celebrate her biggest success so far at the World Championships in Australia and added the World Champion Team title and the U23 World Champion title to her impressive list.

“I took advantage of the opportunity and started the high-performance athletic military recruiting school (Spitzensport RS). This gives me the chance to train more intensively and more professionally. I am proud of being a member of the GHOST Factory Racing Team now and to kick off my life as a professional athlete. I am convinced that, with the team, I will be able to achieve the goals I have set for myself and to make my big dream of the Olympics come true. I am looking forward to share my passion for mountain biking with the team, to travel the world together and to learn from each other.”
