Hielke Elferink started mountainbiking 4 years ago, joining the local Zwiep MTB Team. After moving to Freiburg-Germany, 2 years later, she decided to take the sport to the next level. Combining training and racing (Wheeler-iXS-Team) with her job as a physiotherapist at Sport-Reha in Freiburg. Racing in Bundesliga- and Swisscup XCO races, big international marathons and even stage races, made her realize that this is what she wants and where she wants to get better in! Hielke is Dutch National Champion Marathon 3 years in a row now. In 2014 she became 4th in stage-race Cape Epic. Now she rides for Craft – Rocky Mountain Factory Team.
