My Story

I live in the hilly Czech republic. I am 20 years old and I started cycling in 2017. I did my first Zwift race one year after and that is where all the fun started. I am also racing IRL with not so many results but hey, I am working on it. Since I live at the base of the mountains I have an addiction to climbing all day. With my body type I am not a pure climber, but I think that I can climb sometimes. Weird thing about me is that all my IRL training is done on climbs and I almost never do flat rides. When I’m off the bike I study at university.

How you discovered Zwift

Through YouTube videos, my first Zwift ride was in 2018.

Real life athletics background

I used to run in early age and played football really badly. My first memories from riding a bike is when I was learning to ride a bike with my sister and I went down this very steep street and crashed into bushes. I Started cycling in 2017, racing in Czech republic. I see myself as a diesel climber. I live in mountains so climbing is the way I ride.

Fun Fact:
I am a happy person with great taste for movies. Cycling is a way of life. Climbing is love, suffering is passion.
