Riders & Teams

  • The BIKBEBEAT RACING TEAM is a racing team for licensed cyclists of the RSC Komet Ludwigsburg. It forms as an elite racing community, is open to ambitious competitive athletes of other clubs and currently recruits its drivers from the federal states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. The team was founded in 2011 and completed a name change in 2019 by the new main sponsor Bikebeat. Currently, the team consists of 11 riders who compete in the elite and amateur class races. All BIKEBEATERS engage in passionate sports and manage between 20 and 40 races and train an average of around 15,000 km per season. The team regularly records victories, podium finishes and placings. Through the cooperation with BIKEBEAT, the racing team has further professionalized. "With the BIKEBEAT wheels, we have first-class material, which means that we are in no way inferior to the very big teams in the peloton in terms of lightness, stiffness and aerodynamics," says Martina Jäger, who manages the sporting skills of the BIKEBEAT RACING TEAM.

    Cycling and University:
    Since 2016 I am Bacherlor of Science of Medical Engineering. After my long and hard study next to my professional career at the TU Munich, I am happy about this degree. Often it was not easy to reconcile both interests, but now I can say with certainty that it was and is possible. I would like to encourage all those who are reluctant to start studying next to their sports career. It just feels better when you know what opportunities you have after your sporting career!

    Cycling and school:
    In 2005 I wrote my high school diploma at Gymnasium Geretsried. As a junior driver in the national team, I got along well without a sports school. My friends have been helpful in keeping me connected, even though the extended race weekends have often been exhausting.

    Favorite Food:
    “Zwetschgendatschi”, “Sauerbraten”, chocolate + gummy, grilled octopus, apple strudel, steak ... yummy ...

    Initially started running in 2001, Marion entered the triathlon in 2006. Here she mostly liked the long edges. Due to health problems she had to restrict running more and more, which ultimately brought her closer to cycling. Marion has been running this business almost exclusively and with great passion for the last few years. She likes things like long climbs and the long haul in general. In Germany we say: “When the diesel runs, then it runs.” For every coach she would be a nightmare - without plan, pulse or Watt values. True to the motto: much helps a lot, nothing comes of nothing and “was wir ham, ham wa! (Bavarian motto)
    Fun in the movement comes first, the rest comes from alone.
