Ecuatorianswiss, Karl has impregnated his personality on his understanding of the sport, highlighting the trail, alpinism, but also and in the same successful way, on mountain bike (with more than 80 gold medal on maximum international level), and rock climbing. Above all, Karl loves mountains, in which he moves confortable since childhood, with only 7 years old, and since his 15 years old next to his father, climbing glaciers.

The true value of experience, is to be a better human being every day, and to share this travel with experiences, mountains, and unforgettable people.

“Mountain to me is not a sport, it's a lifestyle, it energizes me and show me respect and humility to face the day. Running in the mountains to feel free and connected to Mother Nature”
