Just 20 inches small are the tires of the bicycle with which anna katharina muller plunges into real adventures, and still quite successful. The 19-year-old competes in the german national league and was even able to compete in the world BMX championships in may. Whether it does so? “I’m still thinking about it, it’s in the middle of my study semester. It’s also a question of money,” she says.
The woman from wiesentheide is considered exotic in her sport, at least in this country. There are about 600 licensed BMX riders in germany, including just three girls. “By way of comparison, there are 15,000 licenses in france, around 5,000 in the netherlands, and the vast majority are boys,” says her father jurgen muller. It was through him that anna katharina first came to the sport of BMX, because jurgen muller sells motorcycle accessories and at the same time supplies BMX riders with clothing.
