BIKING IS MORE THAN PEDALLING...
Actually I come from Bad Schönau in Lower Austria. I first came to South Tyrol in 1995 and stayed, ultimately, for love.
Cycling was initially just a hobby
: I began to explore the trails of the region and soon realised what great potential this biking paradise
holds. In 2001, I was struck with the idea of training as a bike guide
, as a second career. The logical consequence was the founding of Krauti's Bike Academy
. I am also a co-founder of the Association of South Tyrol Bike Guides
and have been on the board of South Tyrol Bike Hotels since 2007.
My vision sounds hopeful:
in the coming years, I would like to see the region of South Tyrol, especially around Catinaccio (Rosengarten) and Latemar, become the best cycling area in the world!
