MISSION: It’s all a ride!
HELENE FRUHWIRTH: Downhill Mountainbike!
Helene Valerie Fruhwirth, was born on 11th August 1983 in Vienna. Still lives in Austria and we are glad to sponsor her, because she is a downhill mountain bike rider!
It all started when Helene got her puppy Apollo. From then on, she spent most of her time with him in the nature, was hiking and discovered the MTB track near her house. She was immediately enthusiastic about the other riders and wished herself a bike on every occasion. Finally she got her first bike: a Cannondale CAAD 3 hardtail MTB. When she first wanted to ride the track, she was completely scared but Helene overcame this fear and that was the beginning of her mountain bike career. In the meantime she is not only a downhill racer but also a 4x racer. In addition to cycling, it also has its own coaching academy – the vienna bike academy.
In any case, she can look back on a great career: 13th place at the DH World Champs, two times overall Pro Tour titles, many Pro Tour wins and so on. The main focus was to win a medal at the World Champs. Helene achieved this goal in August 2017 – she won the bronze medal! So she can finish the 4x racer chapter and now wants to ride more DH again. Keep it up, Helene, we’re proud of you!
