Daniela Schmidsberger Austria
Racing in the road and MTB disciplines as a junior for the past two years, Daniela Schmidsberger says that though climbing is her biggest strength, she still describes herself as an all-rounder cyclist. The 18-year-old from Vöcklabruck in Austria has aimed for the professional ranks since she first rode her late grandfather’s bike three years ago.
“No words describe how much I look forward to the season with CANYON//SRAM Generation. There, I have the best conditions to develop as a cyclist and person and come closer to my future goals. For the next season, my goal is to improve my overall skills as a cyclist and learn as much as possible. Further in the future, I want to become a successful World Tour cyclist.”
