Date of Birth
Munich / Berlin, Germany
Hey, I'm Marion. I'm a sponsored gravel- and ultra-racer from Germany. I also have a PhD in maths and work for one of the biggest research institutions in Germany - the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft - where I now manage and coordinate science (not doing maths anymore). Besides cycling and science, I love rock climbing, running, and winter sports.
In 2015 I came to cycling through the Berlin fixie scene, where I initially rode alleycats and fixed crits (such as the Rad Race or the Red Hook Crit series). The short, technical races and the associated alternative racing scene were exactly my things for a long time until my fixed-crit accomplice asked me at the end of 2017 whether I would like to take part in the Transcontinental Race (TCRNo6) with her as a pair. I accepted immediately. That was my entry into the ultra-distance cycling scene. In 2020, I started riding ultra-distances off-road as well.
Long, short, road, off-road, racing or adventure - I just love everything that challenges me on the bike.
