Top Disciplines: DH

Emilie ‘Fatima’ or ‘Steezenhagen’ Siegenthaler has been a fixture on Crankworx podiums over the past few years, but her two-wheeled journey started when she was just four-years-old: “I started racing xc as a kid, and continued until 2007. In 2008 I switched to DH and never wanted to do anything else since!” In 2014 she attended her first Crankworx in Les 2 Alpes – she says the vibe of having all the best mountain bikers in the world, from all different disciplines, in one spot, blew her away. It’s that Crankworx spirit of camaraderie that also led to one of her favourite Crankworx moments: watching her teammate Bernard Kerr getting crowned King of Crankworx in 2015, after winning the multi-disciplinary all-season race by just one point. With an array of podiums in Crankworx downhill races, pump track and whip-off, she says she’s looking to keep that momentum going, and take it to the next level.
