Trixi Worrack

18th September 1981  |  Germany

Trixi Worrack brings with her seventeen years of bike racing expertise. She’s been around long enough to have started before radios were the norm, so she understands the tactics on the road (a very important skill now that race radios will be mostly out of the picture). She started racing because the sport she really wanted to play (soccer) just wasn’t all that popular for women in Germany. Cycling, however, is big in the town where she grew up: Cottbus. She started winning right away. “Otherwise I wouldn’t have stayed in the sport,” she says.

She lives in Germany year-round on the east coast, in a town called Rostock. It’s flat there but windy, good for building mental toughness. Her main riding partner is her girlfriend. During the off-season, she loves just relaxing and spending time with friends.

The races that have meant the most to her during her career were getting 2nd at Worlds in 2006 2nd and her 2nd place finish at Flanders 2004. Flanders is exactly the kind of race she loves, brutally hard one-day classics (she also excels in tours, incidentally). The more wind, cobbles and rain the better, she says. But what cracks her out there on the road? Really hot weather.

In 2013, she broke a bone early in the season and came back to win the German Road Champioships, win a World Title as part of the Specialized-lululemon team time trial team and take 5th place in the Individial time trial at Worlds. She’s the captain on the road and can plank longer than any of the other riders, staff or team sponsors!

The foods she loves: Meat, all kinds, lots of protein.

Pre-race meal: Oatmeal. Though she says she doesn’t really like it.

Her nickname: Tute. It’s what she was called as a kid.

Favorite music: Hip hop.

Pets: 3 cats. Fiby. Garfield. Maxi.
