Haibike is happy to welcome Helene Fruhwirth to our team!
2013 Helene more or less coincidentally made the acquaintance of destiny: After a heavy crash doctors discovered a huge, yet undiscovered brain cavernoma which the 35-year old barely survived. To give up was never an option for Helene. „What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger “, she said to herself and never looked back. „Afterwards I felt like Miss Unbreakable”, she jokes. After this, she won the Overall World Cup in 4X two times and celebrated a lot of 4X Pro Tour victories. In 2017, she won bronze medal in the 4X World Championships.
„Downhill racing is a big part of my life, but I also love to bring other people closer to biking and convey riding technique. I would like to show especially to women that anything is possible in this male-dominated type of sport. Female self-reliance is the trick, whether with technique or simple courage”, she adds.
