Christian hails from the low mountains of Siegerland. Together with his wonderful family, Christian can start with the mountain bike from the garage directly into the forest – and that’s been his whole life. In 2010, at the age of 19, Christian started relatively late to racing downhill. But quite quickly he could count himself among the top German riders and competitive in the European and World Cups. From 2016, the topic of Enduro became more and more the focus. Since 2018, Christian competes exclusively in enduro, especially in the Enduro World Series.
When the season is over Christian likes to take a break and retreat to „normal life“ in the countryside, enjoying time with family and friends, tinkering with stuff in the garage or building trails and pump tracks. He loves when people are relaxed, can enjoy good food all day long, and enjoy being outside.

About Ergon Products
On the SM Enduro Comp Men, the compromise between legroom and comfort has succeeded particularly well. Enduro-specific parts have to perform the widest balancing act, and the Ergon saddle does that perfectly.
In the Slim version, the GD1 Evo Factory grips are among the thinnest lock-on grips on the market, which is ideal for me with relatively short fingers. They create pleasant damping, and by the well-placed contours in the grip I can properly „claw“ when it’s getting really gnarly at the end of a long EWS Stage!
