Claudia rides a vintage red fixed gear called “the pin-up bike

SWISS LEGS STRIKES AGAIN !
The evening after the photo shoot, she won the first place 
for the Women Goldsprint at the Paris messengers event 
"Le noël des coursiers". She likes to ride with SURPLACE team too.

She works as a therapist for autistic children and came to Paris to study fashion design and modeling. She graduated Esmod School.


Her power and her energy come from the fact that she used to move with her racing bike in the Swiss mountains, where she comes from. She rode a vintage rare Swiss frame, a bike she had before she arrived in Paris and was stolen from her here. Now she straps a bicycle chain lock from her Brooks’s saddle to the frame. (cf close-up)

Having travelled a lot in Asia, she experienced bicycling in Saigon 6 months for work and she said that cycling there was crazy, with bad roads, crazy scooters, no rules, pollution: it was a big challenge!  So a student she met there gave her a lucky charm to protect her (cf close-up)
