Cycling professionally and also developing educationally. A parallel life that only works with a lot of sacrifice. The promotion of top-class sport is a social issue, but also one that concerns us at Maloja Pushbikers. What is it about – an unconditional pursuit of success or personality and individuality? With the suggestion of our Pushbiker Max Benz-Kuch, we would like to share some points of view with you.
In the past year, the Pushbikers community has become a permanent part of our concept. We look back on many Thursday evening rides, meetings in the Pushbikers Shop, at the regulars’ table or even at the museum in Munich to experience a bicycle exhibition together. At the end of the year in December, it was time to create light! Read how and where here.
Not only the Pushbikers riders and support staff went to this year’s Tour of Upper Austria, but also a young man with a camera and a drone. Our goal was to film what it means to race as a Continental road team. And let the team riders themselves speak out. In the end, it became a reportage about why you dedicate yourself to cycling and what keeps us together as a team. Because we have much more in common than just racing.
“The weekend described in a nutshell: cold, fun, team-building. Certainly a nice experience, which was mainly the communal feeling on the farm, while it was quite uncomfortably cold outside. It had more of a feeling of many friends coming together in one place and going through a good time than a strictly planned team meeting.”
My team, my crew, my family – welcome to the Pushbikers, Roy! Following the World Championships in Paris in October, where Roy won the bronze medal in scratch, and before the UCI Track Champions League starts on 12 November, we would like to finally introduce you to the Dutchman. We talk to him about track riding, team spirit, good coffee and show you some highlights of his career in pictures.
“You meet each other twice in life” . And even then, you can share the same values. Welcoming Roy Eefting as a new rider for 2023 reunites us with Nick Stöpler, ex-track pro, Pushbiker and recently Dutch national coach. A conversation about well-being, positive influence on others and why track cycling is like a game of chess.
