Career & Personal
Again in close connection with the D.velop Ladies Cycling team we got to know Naima. It quickly became clear that both of us had the interest to make a difference, so it came to a quick cooperation and we are happy to support Naima!
Naima is on the road as well as off-road. The 29-year-old career changer changed by chance from ball sports to cycling during her studies and has been riding in the German elite women's team of d.velop ladies since 2017. Last season she finished within the top 10 of the German Bundesliga ranking. On the mountain bike she won the UCI Portugal MTB Tour, a second place in the Andalucia Bike Race and a 16th place in the MTB European Championships. For 2019 the focus will be on road cycling: After Naima was in the jersey of the national team for the first time at the Elsy Jacobs Fetsival (Luxembourg), the German Championships and the Lotto-Thüringen Rundfahrt of the women will be among the highlights of this year's season. "The motivation is huge and I am looking forward to the new challenges," says our athlete. She particularly likes mountainous, selective races - even over several days. Apart from cycling, Naima works as a doctor in a hospital - which can be wonderfully combined thanks to our effective training schedule.
