In the second part of our “Ambassadors meet Commitment Partners” series, Andreas Caminada slips into the role of a para-cycling athlete and Sandra Stöckli into the role of top chef. Both roles seem very different at first glance, but on closer inspection, a few parallels become apparent.
A beautiful, sunny day, pleasant temperatures and plenty of anticipation among the participants: the perfect setting for today’s role swap between top chef Andreas Caminada and handcyclist and para-cycling athlete Sandra Stöckli. The two bikes stand ready for adventure on the forecourt of the Casa Caminada in Fürstenau. Andreas Caminada looks suitably impressed while inspecting Sandra Stöckli’s latest acquisition: the awe-inspiring vehicle with an electronic gear shift is made of pure carbon and weighs just eleven kilograms. The entire structure of her bike – her constant and loyal companion – has been adapted and customized to suit her body perfectly. Nothing has been left to chance – after all, the bike is one of the most important parts of this sport. The good equipment, mental strength and physical fitness all helped Sandra Stöckli to her Olympic diploma at the Paralympics in 2016.
