Robert Mennen


The strategist

“Mountain Biking is about taking things to a limit.”

Confirmed by his win at the German Marathon Championships in 2013, the 28 year old Mennen is known as a cool headed strategist amongst the pro riders of the scene. It is with an impressive clarity that he dictates races, putting himself in the correct position to attack or defend, it is an attribute which finally is seeing him step out of the shadows of mentors Kurschat and Lakata.

Added to his strategizing, his ability to adapt and his willingness to learn are what almost make success certain. For Robert, Mountain Biking′s appeal lies in the combination of nature, freedom and physical exertion. It is from this which he draws his ability to push himself to the limit when racing.
