GUNN-RITA DAHLE FLESJÅ
The 'grande dame' of mountain biking
On top of that, she has taken an active role in promoting and developing cycling networks in her native Norway, encouraging children and beginners to enjoy the sport she has dedicated her working life to and campaigning to make cycling a safer and more pleasurable activity for all. Just like her former teammate José Hermida, Gunn-Rita can’t stay away from the race tape for too long and still gets involved in selected races all over the world, adding to her staple cross-country and marathon events with a renewed interest in ultra-endurance cycling - and e-mountain biking too.
Having Gunn-Rita on our team also gives us the chance to benefit from product knowledge and insights gathered in her 20+ years of racing at the very highest levels, supporting the MERIDA R&D team in their effort to take our products to the next level. To recap her outstanding career, we created a tribute video that shows the highlights of her 20+ year-long active racing career as well we the other elements of her life of being a mother, wife, and cycling ambassador.
