Because riding horses downhill is boring

Franzi got on a mountain bike for the first time because her father was so keen on it. What she wanted most was to get back to the horses. After the first tours and lots of grumbling her ambition grew and she began to train hard . A year later she contested her first races and there was a new bike in the garage rather than a horse in the stable. However, it quickly became clear that Franzi enjoyed downhill more than uphill . The lack of an intermediate discipline resulted in her switch to downhill. Her motivation and anticipation was so great that she signed up for her first race before she bought her first downhill bike and her first race was therefore her third time on her new bike. The first season (2013), while she was still an amateur, brought with it almost exclusively first places and an overall victory in the German Downhill Cup. Her next season, now as a professional, brought with it her next overall victory as well as her first enduro race and her first places in that discipline too.

In 2015, the focus was on Enduro alone. The German Champion’s title and the first Enduro World Series competitions were the highlights of the season. A low came when she broke her clavicle during training. An annoying break right in the middle of the season, but thankfully, the injury healed quickly. The freshly minted medical doctor likes to spend winters biking in warmer climates. Whether it is as a bike guide in La Palma where she enjoys a more than 2000m elevation profile a day or on a tour of New Zealand, what really matters is to spend as much time on the bike as possible while the conditions at home are not quite as good.

“Normally, I'm always taming the downhill trails with the PathRiot. But the DRE AMR X is simply a cool machine! Incredibly well designed, light where it should be light, and awesome performance with the Cane Creek steel coil shocks! Telescopic support with comfortable saddle, easily adjustable fork and a drive train you can’t fault. The perfect match for my racing machine!”
