German downhill champion Nina Hoffmann is one of the most progressive talents in international mtb racing. The former professional javelin thrower only made the transition to downhill racing four years ago and has already achieved several podium positions during the 2019 season.

2020 was a difficult year for her, as for all athletes. For a long time it was uncertain whether the racing season could take place at all and whether a world championship would be held.

We accompanied Nina throughout the season and experienced ups and downs together with her. But in the end everything turned out well and Nina was able to finish the season with a World Cup victory and a third place in the overall ranking.

 Holy f*ck, talk about motivated. I'm pumped to go train just listening to her. Even more excited now about that win and what she's gonna do next season.

Now, if I could just get up off this sofa. Meh, it will be pass.

 I like that, as with Camille Balanche, she was moving on from another elite sport and got caught up in bikes because here you can still compete at an elite level but bikes so amazingly more fun.

 Super cool to see the story of how people get where there are. I am certain there will be more decorations for this rider and certainly she an awesome racer to watch on a bike.

 This is very enjoyable, loved the insight on 'the racers mind' and who she is. How about the women's √©lite class? Watching Nina here builds the stoke for next year!

 Great video - I was hoping for a little more info about her team setup and her decisions following her breakout year last year, but it's all good.

 She is such a great sports person and down to earth. Her reports on mtb-news are always a great inside, well written and emotional!

 Womens DH is really good just now with the old guard and the new kids on the block. The conditions made for more varied racing in 2020. To see how quickly Nina has reached the top step is great, will be interesting in 2021 to see what happens in the women's field.
