THE “FUN” ON THE BIKE AND TO SHARE THE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN CHASING TIMES UP A CLIMB

Cycling for me is the perfect way for me to take me to beautiful places, share a nice time with friends and explore new areas. I love long distance rides, challenging climbs and the beauty to do all this just with my own strength. The “fun” on the bike and to share the beautiful moments is more important to me than chasing times up a climb.

 

What kind of bike discipline do you practice?

I ride mainly with my road bike. Tough climbs, long distance rides and challenges. I love to travel with my bike to go to beautiful places or across the mountains to visit my friends in Italy.
In addition I really fell in love with Gravel riding – away from the busy roads and into the nature. Also a great chance for some bike-packing adventures.
With a passion for photography I always have my LEICA Q2 with me to capture those beautiful moments in the mountains, the nature and the time with my friends.

 

Which Selle San Marco saddles do you use and how do you feel?

My favourite Selle San Marco saddle is the Shortfit Racing Iridescent. I rode with the Aspide before and it was nice but the Shortfit is just amazing. Perfect fit for me and finally days of saddle pain are over. The comfort and fit are amazing and I love the style as it still features the traditional look of a saddle with the shorter length. During my bike fitting with the idmatch BikeLab I had the chance to try the new Aspide Short and really like it as well. Definitely a model I’m considering for the future.

 

Why did you choose Selle San Marco?

The heritage and passion behind the Selle San Marco saddles is something I love in addition to the drive for new technologies and making the ride even better than it already has been.
As an Engineer I love the passion for improvements and innovations as well as the heritage of Selle San Marco. On the other hand the Photographer in me appreciates the style of Selle San Marco too.
