Being outside, on the bike, shredding my backyard trails, that is what gives me a sense of absolute freedom. Freedom in one of the best forms possible. Freedom that makes you completely oblivious to any hardships or heartaches one might experience in life. Pushing beyond my limits, both physically and mentally, in or out of competition, defines who I am.
Growing up on a farm in the south of Namibia, helped me developing a mindset of sustainability. Being far away from any city or industrial development made sure that nature was left untouched. This is not the case when you get closer to human development. That is why human development in a environmentaly sustainable manner is really important, this way we can continue to enjoy the nature around us. With the support from Vaude, I know I can do my part in sustainable development.
