Madison

Kim Strobl
Road and track cycling is everything for Madison (12). No wonder, with her dad being one of the most accomplished cyclists on the circuit. One day she wants to be just as successful as him - and for that she pushes herself to her limits. But when she is forced to leave the prestigious national training camp and spend the summer with her yoga-teaching mother in the Tyrolean Alps, her life gets turned upside down. Everything is different there: the atmosphere, the landscape, the people - and heavy downhill bikes instead of road bikes! It takes new friends to show her that cycling can be fun too, not just a self-punishing, competitive sport, and that it's time to discover her own path through life. Sometimes you have to look off-road to find your own way.
