Five years ago, Janika believed she could become the first Estonian female Olympic mountain bike cyclist -- and then worked to make that a reality.

 

As a latecomer to the sport, no one took her seriously despite her athletic background as a high school long-distance runner and a serious competitor in the local mountain bike races. So she created her own system: she moved to Spain with her husband and hired a coach, working freelance graphic design to fund her training. In the span of only three years she had improved her ranking from 400th place to be within the top 15.

Qualification is now within reach, but she wants to do more than just that. This three-time national champion and UCI world ranked number 5 wants to win a medal.

Achievements:

         9th, European Championship

         5th, UCI World Ranking

         3x Estonian National Champion

         2x Estonian Best Female Cyclist of the Year

I’m driven by curiosity to see what I’m capable of.
