Désirée commited herself to cycling at the age of 13. Only four years later she was already part of the under 19yrs. Swiss national team. Her achievements at national as well as international events are a great motivation for her to keep getting better and better. She joins the Bigla Cycling Team where she rides for five years before she leaves for a German team. As soon as the team dissolves at the end of 2015, Désirée and her team mate Caroline Baur decided to take matters into her own hands. They have founded a new team by joining forces with Samsung. Now she is on her way to the top of the international professional cycling scene.
