About our Hosts
Emma Pooley was a professional cyclist for 9 years, winning the time trial World Championships in 2010 as well as 5 further cycling medals at Olympics, World Championships, and Commonwealth Games for Great Britain. For much of her cycling career, Emma worked part-time alongside training and racing, as a researcher in geotechnical engineering at ETH Zürich.
Janine Marty started racing when she was about 10 years old. At the same time, she joined the RMV Cham-Hagendorn cycling club, where she still actively helps out with the children as a bike coach. Currently, she is an ambassador for Swiss cycling and leads weekly women's rides in Zug with the goal of mobilizing as many like-minded people as possible for cycling.
Martin Elmiger has a passion for cycling through nature on quiet back roads and for exercises on his bike. The 17 years as a professional cyclist at the highest level have clearly shaped Martin. He enjoys sharing his experiences in and out of the peloton and loves motivating people to go above and beyond.
