Eva Lechner By The Numbers
What has been your Proudest Moment:
I finished my first ABSA Cape Epic, a stage race in South Africa with 800km off road and 40 hours on the bike in 8 days with my teammate Nathalie Schneitter(SUI). It was a super hard experience and I’m so proud to complete this grueling race.
First memory participating in your sport:
When I started mountain biking, one day it was raining really hard and my coach didn't want to go for training, but I still wanted to go at any price. So we met and my coach just said to me: C'mon girl, today it’s heavily raining, so let’s go home! And I was disappointed.”
