What does it mean for you to be a worldcup rebel?
It means being part of a strong group of friends. It’s almost like having a second family.

What´s your favorite meal on race days?
I’m not really able to eat what I want, so I eat what they give me. But normally I prefer a low sugar meal.

How do you prepare for a race? Do you have a special ritual before the start of a race?
I don’t have any special ritual because I feel different for almost every race. I try to adapt my program depending on that feeling. My warm-up is really important for me and I take it serious.

What`s your Number 1 worldcup track?
I don’t have a #1 track, but Kranjska Gora is a special place for me because I have claimed my first Europe Cup and World Cup podium there.

Was ski racer the profession of your dreams as a child?
I always wanted to be a sportsman but not particularly a skier. Then later it was my choice and life has given me the opportunity to continue my way as a ski racer.
