[Press Release] – Dolomites, Italy: Karen Eller has been an athlete at SCOTT for more than 15 years. Nearly as long ago, she started the German-Austrian based Contessa Team. This season we are focusing on the stories of those taking their love for the sport and helping give that power to others.
We met up with Karen and the team in the Italian Dolomites near Valsugana for some breathtaking scenery, riding and to take a look back at life shared on and off the bike.
Mountain biking has a simple beauty about it. One that goes beyond intense training blocks or consuming trails as fast as possible. If you let it, mountain biking can bring you in contact with people unique in age and background. It can take you to places you may otherwise never see, forcing you to stop and pause. Best of all, it will leave a smile on your face long after you have returned to your everyday life. You can’t explain it, but you can share it.
