Known from the BMX and 4X circus, Steffie has also made a name for herself with her Purple TaSte Bike weekends. Bringing women to mountainbiking and giving them the fun of trail surfing is an important part of the everyday bike life for Steffie. Meanwhile, you mainly see Steffie riding on trails around her adopted home Stuttgart. As far as races are concerned, Steffie is currently in the enduro scene.

When did you start riding mountain bikes? How did you get into the sport?
I started with BMX Racing when I was 5 years old. After two bad knee injuries at the age of 19 I switched 4cross racing two years later. When the UCI stopped the 4cross world cup I decided to race enduro and give women’s clinics.
Best moment on a bike?
Finished my first world cup race with a podium.
When I broke my wrist ten minutes before my qualification run at World Cup Leogang :-/
