athleteEmilie Siegenthaler

BIO

Emilie is a Swiss Downhill Mountain Biker who started riding bikes from a very young age. She started mountain biking because her father was a cross-country racer in the 90’s. She did cross-country racing for quite some time, but then moved on to Downhill in 2007.

After having done cross-country racing for almost ten years, she developed health problems that made continuing difficult – crushing her dream of competing in the Olympics. She made the switch to downhill mountain biking and when she did well in her first race, it became her new passion.

She is a Pivot Cycles Factory Rider and a six-times Swiss National Champion (2008-2014).

Leatt Gear: GPX 6.5 Neck Brace.
