WHAT IS YOUR ROLE/POSITION IN MOTORCYCLING?
I am a street bike racer. With my Triumph Daytona 675 from 2010 I participate in endurance races and brand specific races. With my AWO 425 from 1960 I participate in vintage road races.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO MOTORCYCLING?
My parents are interested in motorsports. Thus I joined motorsport competitions, especially motorbike races, from the beginning of my life. All I ever wanted to do is riding a motorbike as perfect as possible.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE/ENJOY IN MOTORCYCLING?
I get a direct feedback of my doing. All, what happens with the bike, is initiated by me. There are no excuses. I prepare and repair my bikes by myself. Thus I know exactly what is going on in the "extension of my body".
WHAT IS YOUR OBJECTIVE, YOUR GOAL?
I want to be perfect in riding. I want to ride precisely and exactly. With the vintage bike I want to understand how to ride technology from the last century, which is totally different to today's riding style.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MOTORCYCLING?
With riding a motorbike you demonstrate self-responsibility and confidence. It is all about you. Just you.
