Can you imagine riding some of your favorite trails on the way home? Nope… Neither can we, nevermind riding all your favorite bikes! Well, for Vali Höll it’s an everyday feeling. It’s a ‘Vibe’! Starting at her local pump track in Leogang, Vali goes for ‘one more lap’ of her favorite trails before heading to the Spielberghaus for Ice Cream, her hardest decision is which bikes to ride! Breathtaking views, big mountains and fast-flowing trails, the Saalbach region of Austria is undoubtedly a great place for mountain bikers and has clearly had a huge impact on Vali’s career. Saalbach is home to the Spielberghaus, owned by Vali’s family, somewhere she has spent her childhood and a great place to finish your ride. Whether you’re looking for ice cream like Vali or a beer, #goodtimes are sure to be had!

It’s fair to say that Vali Höll’s bike career started a few years earlier than the average: she took part in her first race – with no training wheels, at just three years old, and now she’s a 2x World Champion. Coming from Saalbach it’s no surprise and it’s great to see she enjoys the ‘Vibe’ as well as winning races.

bigquotesIn Saalbach I can ride every discipline I want to train on, I can ride DH in Leogang, singletrack in the Mountains or bike park laps, im pretty lucky to be surrounded by great trails. I love riding at home and seeing how I progress every year, whether its clearing bigger jumps or getting faster on certain trails. It's also amazing to have my family around, I go riding with them and spend a lot of #goodtimes with them.Vali Höll

Vali rides for SRAM TLD Racing, meaning all her bikes are fully custom, and decked out with the latest SRAM parts, including the all-new Rockshox Zeb, SRAM AXS & more. In the video, she rides #YTDIRTLOVE, #YTIZZO, #YTJEFFSY, #YTTUES & #YTCAPRA.

bigquotesMy favorite bike is the Jeffsy 29. It works amazingly with the SRAM AXS and Eagle, the perfect bike to climb and descend with.Vali Höll

 weird ass video. i'm excited to watch Vali so i clicked, but the music was a little overly intense, and with a title like "it's a vibe" i was expecting some kind of chill laid back edit. also half the shots you could barely see her riding the bike, it was a blurry shakey mess, which i assume is to add to the "intensity". just show her and her riding off, all the extra crap took away from that.

 This was an Österreichisches Deutsch advert by YT inviting you to have a beer at Vali Höll's family Spielberghaus, not a serious 'riding' edit.

 @endlessblockades: well it wasn't exactly an effective advertisement either. my point was that it's a bit of a conflicted miss of a video overall, which is a shame considering she's such a great rider that we don't get to see enough of.

 @thepwnstar39: Fair enough. That's just what YT wanted to show us. Being German, their accent is sometimes 'different'. I am also looking very forward to seeing Vali contend in Elite DH.

 The life of a sponsored rider, another bike and another foto session every day. Smile I wish her not to hurt herself and stay motivated!

 I would love to see how she setup her IZZO, looks like she put more aggressive tires, and a larger fork on it as well as taking off the grip lockout.

 Girls on fire. She even knows each type of riding requires a different helmet and eyewear.
