From the age of 14 onwards, Joris spent every free minute riding his mountain bike. Today, the Swiss-born rider competes internationally riding for his own team, JR RACING. He competes in, regular XC riding and e-bike XC disciplines.
When asked about his biggest sporting dream, he answers: "The obvious answer would be to say that I’d like to be an Olympic or World champion one day. But I’m actually already living my dream, because I have the opportunity to travel the whole world with my bike and to inspire younger riders and society with the sport of mountain biking. What could be better?"
