Young Swedish rider Alma Wiggberg will be the second female athlete to join the RASOULUTION roster, following the signing of Olympic medalist Nikita Ducarroz. She will be supported in all aspects of athlete management, press relations and communications strategies. The Swedish young gun shows us that the younger MTB generation is fierce and ready to make their mark, following in the footsteps of riders like Emil Johansson, Max Fredriksson and Martin Soderstrom.
Alma burst onto the scene in 2020 and was spotted immediately for her potential by Red Bull and was named one to watch. Quickly making a name for herself since then, she’s proven that she can handle the biggest jumps and races against the clock, already having two Swedish National Championships wins to her name, one in Pumptrack and one in Enduro. In 2021, she was an integral part of the amazing women’s event at Audi Nines and just a few weeks back, she finished second at the Zurich Dirt Contest.
RASOULUTION will be supporting Alma when it comes to her brand partnerships, and has recently joined the global Specialized team, which is one of the first agreements put in place by us. This adds to her existing partnerships with Sixpack, Crankbrothers and SICK.
Alma has already featured in a number of movies, including Connection 2, a full-length MTB film starring some of the best Swedish riders and riding locations, as well as Esperanto, a film about exploring how we, as riders, share our dreams through a universal two-wheeled language no matter what our native tongue may be.
It’s safe to say that 19-year-old Alma Wiggberg is well on her way to join the top ranks of the sport in 2022.
“I am more than pleased to have Alma as the first female mountain bike freerider in our roster of world class athletes. Alma has been a strong part of the European progression of women’s freeriding. With her skills and dedication for two wheels she is already motivating others to join her not only on the ground, but often in the air!
We are very happy to be supporting her young career.” – Tarek Rasouli
