Michaela

The bike-loving nurse from the Brixen valley

play_arrow

Michaela Osl grew up in the Brixen Valley as the youngest of four siblings. From an early age, the fun-loving Michi discovered nature. Today the mountains give her a feeling of freedom: "I can practise my greatest passion, sport, here, right on my doorstep."

Michaela's father was already an enthusiastic racing cyclist and his daughter also regularly took part in cycling races at an early age. When she was 17 years old, she decided against professional sport over her dream career of becoming a nurse.

Mountain biking: balance with work

Working in the intensive care unit at St. Johann's hospital presents stressful situations. The perfect balance: sport. For example, hiking, mountaineering and climbing. But mountain biking is her favourite. That's what Michaela needs to recharge her batteries and strength for work. The exertion, the sweating, the stimulated pulse - all this increases her well-being enormously.

"I love working off energy and pushing myself to my limits. The feeling afterwards is incredible." Michaela gets her biggest kicks on bigger tours on her downhill bike, like the Fleckalm Trail, not far from her house. It is versatile, challenging, action-packed and demands the utmost concentration - the best conditions for switching off!

Travelling and the advantages of living in the Brixen valley

When Michaela travelled through Sri Lanka with a backpack, it changed her appreciation of things forever. "You begin to notice how little you actually need and at the same time what you miss: simply turning on the tap and drinking water from it, and that in top quality too, like in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. Plus the best food from the region and first-class medical care. You just have to appreciate that."

Michaela's profile

  • checkMy power place in the Kitzbüheler Alpen ... there's no such thing as one and only one place for me. When I'm on my bike, I prefer long tours and like to stop at mountain lakes. When I'm on foot, a summit experience is imortant to me. Here in the Kitzbüheler Alpen I have a huge selection.

  • checkWhat makes my native home special ... be it Summer or Winter, there is always a variety of opportunities to be active and also to relax.

  • checkWhat is my emotional connection to the Kitzbüheler Alpen and why ... this is my home. I grew up here and feel at home here.

I need this exertion when I get my heart rate up. That way I can switch off, feel good and strong again for the next working day.
