“I’m super hyped for the 2022 season and to have crowds again. This is always a factor that pushes me as a rider when there are thousands of fans waiting for you to drop, cheering for you. Especially as I am German, and a lot of Germans come to Innsbruck to watch, so I’m super stoked. It’s going to be a good show!”
