I started cycling in summer 2013 after seeing a video of the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii and I thought I wanted to do a triathlon by myself.
After buying my first road bike though, I quit running and never started swimming, because I immediately fell in love with the feeling of riding my bike!
From 2014 to 2017 I spent four seasons racing, and in 2017 participated in my first 24-hour race. From this moment on I switched from more traditional racing to ultra-distance cycling and competed in many 24 and 12-hour races, brevets and other ultra-distance events and I absolutely love it! In 2019 I started exploring the world of bikepacking—one of the best and most intensive ways to travel and to discover new roads and landscapes in my opinion!
