„SINCE MY CHILDHOOD CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING HAS BEEN ONE OF MY GREATEST PASSIONS. TO CHALLENGE MYSELF AGAIN AND AGAIN, TO TEST MY LIMITS, TO TORTURE MYSELF AND TO EXPERIENCE NATURE FROM A SIDE THAT REMAINS HIDDEN TO SOME - THAT MAKES ME REALLY FEEL ALIVE AND FORMS THE IDEAL BALANCE TO EVERYDAY LIFE AND WORK. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE WINTER WHEN I WILL BE USING KÄSTLE MATERIAL FOR THE FIRST TIME."
