BIO

Franze is our “Rookie Ripper” from Bavaria. The 18yrs old already making a scene with 4 years racing under his belt and still not old enough to buy a pint back in Wales. Insane! Like most he lost last year due to COVID so he’s fully charged to get on the program for this year. He’s got Juice Lubes behind him on his quest to finish a top 5 overall in the DHC and a Top 20 EDC for 2021.

He's happiest in the rough and root sections. Shreds corners and loves a bit of banter. He'll fit in well!

He’s first on board our sponsored racer and ambassador program we’ve started up for new talent coming out of Germany.

HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH MOUNTAIN BIKING? Ich war schon als kleines Kind viel auf dem Fahrrad unterwegs, irgendwann habe ich dann angefangen kleine Sprünge zu bauen und Wheelies zu üben, bis ich dann an meinem 14. Geburtstag dass erste mal im Bikepark.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?  Meine Familie, meine Freunde und die Vorfreude auf den nächsten Biketag an dem ich mein Limit ein weiteres Stück nach oben setzen kann.

WHERE HAS BEEN THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE RIDDEN AND WHY? Bikepark Schladming. – Dope Jumplines, rough DH-Track with fast sections and braap corners.

HOW HAS THE LOCKDOWN AFFECTED YOU? Wenig Reisen, wenig Rennen, kein Skifahren, keine Trainingcamps.
