Cudi and I started our coach/athlete relationship without having met before, living on opposite sides of the world and without sharing a native language. As a rider who was already achieving podium results in the World Cup I took a risk to entrust my future in his hands. Cudi has taken on this challenge with determination and motivation. From our fist communications Cudi trusted and respected me as an athlete, and as a person. His communication and willingness to compromise has been invaluable in unlocking the best in me. These attributes are of course nothing without his knowledge, experience and passion for his work. Cudi is a true professional. We are only in the start of our journey together and with this mutual trust and belief I am excited for what the future holds.
