"Finding the proper balance as a competitive racer is getting harder every year but, in the end, it's also hard not to love it. I'm pushing the limits to ride faster every year because it's my passion. Unfortunately not too many people care about it."


Achieving top 50 results at EWS with a 4 days window between work, staying on the box at smaller races is like walking a tightrope - but who cares? That influencer mania is growing bigger and bigger every day, but is it worth spending a lot of money and time on those platforms to gain some fame? Good times on the bike are ticking away while I am hours on the phone. I'm just trying to ride as fast as possible, having a good time, spending money to be on two wheels in nature without 4G ( 5G soon). Anyway it's good to share good times!" - Matthias Stonig

 I think the definition of a privateer is that he/she has to work to have the money to train, travel and race. So there is nobody funding the expenses, let alone paying for an income. Product sponsoring is a different sport and is not uncommon even for Hobby athletes. Besides that I remember the EWS race in 2018 in Jamnica/Petzen where he finished top 30 before some names like Graves or Keene.
Knowing Motte a little and being roughly the same age I understand the neglect of social media. Danke Motte daf├╝r unfollow I di ????!
