If you find even the descent taking your breath away, then you must be on a Swiss MTB trail. Canton Schwyz is a cycling and mountain biking paradise, where stunning views as well as pristine mountain and lake scenery merge with historical sites to create an immersive experience.

Andrea Waldis’s MTB tip
Andrea prefers to do her training at home in Morschach. The region encompassing the Ingenbohl forest and Axenstein offers a wide range of demanding MTB challenges. Do as she does, without forgetting to take a break now and then: the views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Lucerne never cease to amaze.

«Keep moving»
Andrea Waldis’s competitive streak was evident at a young age. She was entering mountain bike races at the age of nine, and now competes against the world elite. Her greatest achievements to date have been securing the title of Junior World Champion in 2012 and a World Cup victory (U23 category) in 2013. It was her family that sparked her passion for sport. They often went walking, cross-country skiing or mountain biking in the Schwyz region. Andrea’s father spurred her on, saying «keep moving».

Professional rider with a heart for children
Andrea Waldis is committed to supporting the next generation of MTB riders. She runs a weekly evening class for school children and in September 2017 she enrolled on a course at the Schwyz University of Teacher Education.
