Stephanie Dietz is a high level muni rider and adventurer with roots in competitive freestyle unicycling. Stephanie achieved top 5 in her category at the 2012 DH world championships, and has pursued muni adventures and mountain descents in the German and Italian Alps as well as ridden internationally in Japan and New Zealand. Stephanie brings a spirit of “rocks, roots, trails and camper vans” to the KH team with her exploration of new and challenging trails on her unicycle.
When my best friend in third grade started unicycling in a local club that had just been founded, obviously I had to do it, too. After nine years of pure freestyle riding with numerous national and international titles I tried mountain unicycling at Unicon 12 in Japan 2004. While studying in Austria close to the hills around Vienna, I really got into it and learnt to appreciate the simplicity and honesty of riding outdoors.
Since then I have been taking part and suceeded in international downhill and crosscountry competitions. I travelled New Zealand with my MUni and went on trips up and down Zugspitze (the highest mountain in Germany) and across the Alps on hiking trails from Germany to Italy - both together with Lutz Eichholz and David Weichenberger and as the first unicyclists ever to do it.
Through unicycling I have meet wonderful people from all over the world and have seen many beautiful places and countries. Unicycling is a simple and back to basic sport, that is physically challenging, makes you focus completely on one thing and overcome your personal boundaries over and over again. It also is a lot of fun, which is why I have many more adventures planned.
