This week, I’m joined by one of the most promising up and coming riders of this generation, Vali Höll. Since Vali hit the World Cup scene, she’s taken the junior women’s category by storm and until Fort William this year had never finished any lower than first. We sat down at the Les Gets World Cup to chat about how she got into riding, beating boys at her first races, getting sponsored, racing with her heroes, injury and much more… Hit play for a listen.

 I was sure, “godmother“ Angie is a major factor in Vali's success. Here is the confirmation. These two stick together like nothing else.
What would you change? - Don't drink so much at the world champs afterparty! ...made my day!!! :-)
Very nice interview! Thanks to all involved.

 @downtimepodcast: Oh I'm not forgetting them but seems like Vali is a steam train and probably not even full gas yet.

 @stoo61: yeah, it's hard to know how much more she has that we aren't seeing yet, it's going to be another interesting season for sure.
