How did you get into extreme cycling?
After my first randonneurs 200km brevet which I finished on MTB machine I decided to be an ultracyclist. It was 5 or 6 years ago. In my opinion I became an ultracyclist when I finished RAA last Year.

What were your most beautiful and hardest bike experiences?
RAA 2017.

At Glocknerman, a large proportion of participants do not always reach the goal. Why are you convinced that you belong to the finisher?
I am not sure I will finish, but I will definitely try.

How do you motivate yourself for a challenge like the Glocknerman?
This is the revenge with The Hochtor mountain, which almost broke me on RAA.

I get supported in sports from?
Only from my friends and family.

How do you prepare for the Glocknerman?
Just cycling according to my trainning plan.

How do you manage to endure extreme stress?
Just cycling, this is the only one cure for stress. In fact before the race i try to spend a lot of hours cycling alone, in the extremally low temperture. But during the race ... hmm I don't remember.

What's your motto?
Bike or die
