DSC_6433I am a Professional Mountain Bike Racer and Ski Instructor based in Champéry, Switzerland. I teach skiing and Biking for the Freeride Company in Champéry. I have been Masters Downhill World Champion three times and European and British Champion in Down Hill Mountain biking. I run a Bike Guiding and Skills School here during the summer months.

I race and represent Great Britain with the help and support of my sponsors. In 2013I am going back to my favourite bikes and longest sponsor Trek Bicycles UK. I am lucky enough this season to be riding a Slash for enduro and guiding , along with a Session for Dh duties. Both equipped with the new 2013 Rock Shox World Cup Boxxers and Lyrics, Avid Elixir nd Sram X-10 components. I am decked out with GForm Pads and Eyewear and Goggles from Adidas. Intrepid Apparel. SueMe bamboo underwear, Buffs and Sealskinz keep me dry with waterproof socks and gloves. As well as Bontrager race clothing and shoes.

Intrepid Apparel are new sponsors this year and new kids on the block in every respect. Based in the UK they are guys close to my heart producing a fantastic line of riding wear, gillets, shorts, softs shells and T Shirts. They are fully behind me and hoping to produce a rainbow stripey jersey this season. Check out and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

  2. Hi Petra,
    Would you be in a position to deliver an inspiring talk to our year 8 leavers at their presentation evening on the 19th of July 2011?
