The gear freak
Nathalie Schneitter, aka Nathi, is a bundle of pure energy in the ROSE Vaujany fueled by ultraSPORTS team. Since starting mountain biking in 2000, she hasn’t been able to stop, conquering one title after the other. In 2008, the Helvetian became U23 European Champion, followed by the 2010 World Cup victory. She proved herself on the international scene during the Olympic Games, placing 15th. She prefers to train in the mountains on technical routes when preparing for cross-country and Enduro championships. Nathalie is all about performance, which is why recently she’s made a name for herself as the ‘gear freak’. Ambitioned, disciplined, Nathi is also a big believer in having fun. After her intense training sessions, she’ll go and spend some time with her family and friends. Her team is also a family of sorts: they laugh together, work hard together, and never give up, standing by her slogan:
Never bow your head, chin up! Look the world straight in the eyes.
