"I grew up in a racing-crazy family. My father was, among other things, a successful mountain biker himself which opened the doors to the sport for me early on, but without building up pressure or expectations so that I could develop in peace. Without any pressure, always for fun!"
"When I came to Germany in 2017, we only had contact with the Lexware Mountainbike Team in Freiburg who supported us from the beginning. Since I have a German passport through my grandfather and knew some German, it was by far the best option. On our first visit to Germany, we stayed for 3 months and did it on our own. My coach and I, as well as 2 buddies, organised ourselves to train and race. During this time we all learned a lot. Then, by winning a small race I was given the opportunity to join Lexware as a guest rider for the 2018 season." Martin explained during the presentation of the video, which you can see in full below.
At only 22 years of age, Martin already has many stories to tell, but the future is sure to hold many triumphs yet to come.
