Holger started cycling relatively late. After years of intense work and the start of a family he noticed the impact too many office hours have had on him. He decided to counteract. A new hobby was needed and a proper one at that. The first bike was bought. Fullsuspension, what else? It was on! Soon it was obvious, this is going to be a passion. At the same time Enduro started to become an independent mountainbike sport and has the finger on the pulse of times, as well as on Holgers. A new bike was needed. With more range of spring and faster. Said and done. The first race, the first taste of blood – he hasn’t stopped riding ever since. The training schedule is part of the free time and the holidays are aligned with the trail networks. He especially likes long Enduro Races, exhausting and characterized by endurance, rather alpine.
Holger rides the Series Enduro World Series / Masters, Trail Trophy Series / Masters and is the Team Manager of the n8tive Factory Enduro Teams.
Kai is part of the team since 2015. He’s 27 years old, native-born Saxon and living in Swiss Laax. As an ex Downhill and licensed 4-Cross rider he feels very comfortable in the n8tive Team and joins in the classes “Men” and “Men Elite” the most challenging Race Series. Lucky for him his traing can start in the backyard. In the rugged mountains of his adopted homeland Switzerland the n8tive parts are regularly acid tested.

As an ex MX and Quad Racer Maik is a real warhorse in the racing game. He’s been with us from the very beginning and hang up his MX career for Enduro racing. With his 38 years Maik is pretty good in the Master 30+ category, he is always to count on podium-wise. Also the Camburger is the emblem of the team, because we carefully want to claim his beard to be the most impressive one in the Enduro Race Circus.
Maik rides the Trail Trophy this Year. Time permitting he will also join some local races in the German uplands.
