Homebase: Berchtesgaden, Germany
DIE ABWECHSLUNG IN DEN SPIELARTEN AM BERG IST FÜR MICH WICHTIG, ABER AUCH DASS ICH MIT EINEM BRETT UNTER DEN FÜSSEN ALLES FAHREN KANN – VON PISTE BIS POWDER. DER KÄSTLE TX65 HP IST DAHER AN ALLEN TAGEN IM SCHNEE MEIN LIEBSTER BEGLEITER, EGAL OB ICH EIN WELTCUPRENNEN BESTREITE ODER EINE GEMÜTLICHE TOUR MIT MEINEN FREUNDEN MACHE.
BIOThe young Berchtesgaden local has big plans. Stefan Knopf has set himself the goal of a minimum of one top-five placement in the under-23 class and to transition into the men’s class. He is already on the German National Ski Mountaineering team and as an employee of the Bavarian Police Force, can devote himself to the sport alongside his training. Born into a very sporty family Stefan started skiing at the age of three.
It was not long before he took up running, and following a short break in his teens, began mountain running. Spurred on by several wins, he was spotted by the National Ski Mountaineering team. His motto: “Let’s go. Up out of bed and into the mountains!” Although, now and again, the 21-year-old can be found lounging on the sofa enjoying a slice of his grandma’s homemade cake.
