The Moustache Man
Simon Gegenheimer, aka ‘moustache’ Simon, is a mountain biker through and through. He’s definitely not a couch potato, constantly traveling somewhere to explore new routes – the more technical, the better. He’s got plenty of cross-country experience under his belt from his days as part of a regional, professional biking club, gradually fighting his way to the national top. Bursting with ideas and driven by an incredible passion for mountain biking, in 2010 he decides to set up the ROSE Vaujany fueled by ultraSPORTS team with Steffen Thum. Simon is the eliminator in the team – regardless of how technical and difficult the track is, he fights his way to the front, right to the top. He proved his talent and his technical prowess on the international scene during the UCI Eliminator World Cup in Norway, conquering the 1st place. The following year, he won the Cup again and finally made it to international renown. He made it into the top three during the UCI Eliminator World Championships 2015 and achieved quite a good start for this season, too. However, despite all his success, the bearded biker from Baden-Württemberg is still a down-to-earth man, spending loads of time with his family and friends during competition breaks.
