Extreme Highs and Lows: Success, Crashing and Recovery

Kristina Vogel was born in Leninskoje in 1990. As a Russian German, she moved to Germany when she was six months old. Impatient from the start, she discovered her enthusiasm for cycling by chance. “Bike E.T. home” was the poster that inspired Kristina Vogel to do her first circuits on a road bike in 2000. Then in 2005, she switched to track cycling.
