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 around the globe. However, what I enjoy most is projects and trips into the alpine wilderness, climbing high, remote mountains and decending as much as possible on my unicycle. I was among the first unicyclists to climb and descend 2962m high Zugspitze (the highest mountain in Germany), to cross the Alps on hiking trails, to descend Cima Ombretta Orientale (3011m) in the Dolomites and 3406m-high Mettelhorn in the Alps. I have also dragged my unicycle to remote places such as national parks in Iceland and Patagonia, only to find out, that they are barely rideable.
