Grüner – professional cyclist
is a professional cyclist who loves extremes. The Ötztaler born in 1985
specializes in long distance racing and often spends many hours or even days in
a row on the saddle.
Sport is for me... Very, very important. I probably couldn’t live without sports.
Three things I associate with the Ötztal: The Ötztal is my home, my place to relax after a long distance race and the place where I prepare for competitions.
My greatest triumph: The title of Ultra Cycling World Champion 2012 and qualifying for the Race Across America.
From this defeat, I learnt something: I have often learnt more from my defeats than from my successes.
This spurs me on to peak performance: The will to achieve my goals.
