Bio

I was born in Bolzano 11th 08 1979 I’m married and I’ve got 2 sons. I consider myself lucky to live in Ortisei, Val Gardena, where I work as technical employee for a local Company. I started to practice mountain biking where I races as Elite from 2006 to 2011. I did some good placement, as the 2nd place at the Sellaronda Hero. Then I discovered the mountain running because it required to me less time for training and compete. Right now Trail Running it’s for me the most important activity and because I used to be a cycler sometimes I join some Traithlon or Duathlon competition, as e.g. the Oetzi Alpin Marathon (mountainbike, mountain running and ski mountaineering). I participated to 2 World Championship with the Italian National Team and I won several races during the last years. What I mostly like about the Mountain Running is the contact with the nature during every season and the possibility to practice this sport everywhere you are.
