Jonas - Bike Guide
Jonas - sports scientist and mountain bike guide

A "Zuagroaster" - which means: someone who is not from here. And yet this is his home. He loves the mountains and sport and so Pongau became his adopted home. He enjoys this in his free time with the love of his life who is, of course, an Austrian. Jonas usually goes on his bike tours accompanied by his beloved camera. His eye sees things that remain hidden to other observers.

Max - mountain bike and hiking guide
Max - mountain bike and hiking guide

Max is a full mountain enthusiast. As a Kuchl resident, he is a trained "woodworm". Kuchl is THE wood community in the Salzburg region. And because life as a woodworm isn't that exciting, Max went to Portugal to work in customer support for BOSE Soundtechnik. But the mountains were missing there, so Max's passion for sport brought him to us in the mountains. A dream combination: ski and snowboard instructor in winter and a qualified bike guide in the Salzburger Sportwelt with guests on bike tours in summer - that's what Max does.

Dennis - MTB and road bike guide

Dennis was born in Bad Ischl and is now an electorI and ski school co-owner. He started his professional career with an apprenticeship as a carpenter in Hallstatt, before going on to complete a Bachelor's degree in sports science. He met our guides while biking and signed up. You can rely on Dennis. He likes punctuality, appreciates logical thinking and says: "You have to understand sarcasm.” As an employee, he appreciates the fun and relaxed atmosphere in the hotel and when dealing with guests.

Holger - bike mechanic and downhill/enduro specialist

With Holger, the D&D Bike Hub is in the very best hands. Or rather, in the best tool cart. There's nothing that Holger can't repair, or better still, we've never experienced this in recent years. Spare parts are stockpiled as much as possible so that we never have a down day. Holger is also a licenced MTB trainer and supports the team with guiding. A real all-rounder.
