What does it mean for you to be a worldcup rebel?

I'm proud to be part of the strongest World Cup team... and "Rebel" is the best way to describe who I am.

What´s your favorite meal on race days?

Race days are intense and particular since I'm eating more than usual and more often and I cannot call what I'm eating "meals" but breakfast is my meal, always. I could live by having three breakfasts a day :)

How do you prepare for a race? Do you have a special ritual before the start of a race?

I wake up with a smile and can't wait to race... well this is the ideal way. Sometimes you just have to put yourself together, forget about the aches, the tiredness, go on the hill and to what your instinct knows best; ski fast no matter what. I love race days because those days are full of emotions and adrenaline and this is what brings people together.

What´s your favorite ski resort in the world?

I love to ski everywhere and discovery new places but a special place in my heart is reserved to Val d'isère and St.Moritz, I kind of have a love story going on with those resorts.

Is music important for you? If yes, which music?

Music is more than just important, it can boost me, relax me, help me go through complicated moments, I'm always listening to some kind of music!
