Richie Schley & Mo Jungaberle – Generations Apart

There is a 40-year age difference between international freeride legend Richie Schley and youngster Moritz Jungaberle from Ravensburg. But both are united by a pure passion for mountain biking. 🔥🔥

In times of Instagram and Youtube, it’s easy for the younger generation to be inspired by the wide range of mountain biking and the incredibly high level of riders.

“I often get inspired on Instagram by riders like Kade Edwards and Jackson Goldstone. They both ride World Cups, but they also do crazy tricks. And kind of cover all disciplines of the sport.” (Mo Jungaberle)

And in the pioneering days of mountain biking? Where did Richie Schley get the inspiration for his freeriding?

“When I came to mountain biking, it was more taking ideas from skiing and from BMX – and going into the hills and playing with your friends and having fun. Just discovering and pioneering…” (Richie Schley)

“Going riding with young Mo was such a cool experience. He took me to his local jump spot and I followed him through his lines. He has great style on and off the bike. Such a nice humble kid, that rides very dynamic and looks good on his bike.” (Richie Schley)

“Nowadays, kids can sometimes be very cocky, but not in Mo’s case. I hope he finds his way to becoming a professional mountain bike rider and fulfills his dreams, like I did. I will ride with him anytime.” (Richie Schley)

“Richie is an absolute legend! It took only a couple of minutes until Mo understood who Richie is and what he did for our Mountainbike Sport and Lifestyle! Thanks, Richie!!!” (Alex Jungaberle, Mo´s Dad)

“To be honest, I didn’t know Richie until my dad showed me some very old Youtube clips from new world disorder with a very young Kurt Sorge! And he showed me clips from “Schleyer” Trail at Whistler Bikepark Richie was very friendly and humble, plus we had nice conversations. That was a great day!” (Mo Jungaberle”
