The start was actually more in alpine sports. Even before I started ski jumping or even knew what it was, I competed in a few races with the Ski Club Seekirchen. Back then I already loved jumping over small jumps and sailing as far as possible. Our coach, who did ski jumping himself, asked us if we wanted to jump over real hills with alpine skis. And so it happened that we drove to Schwarzach for a few days and jumped over a 15 meter hill. Since then, a small team has built up in Seekirchen, which has also become more and more successful. After regional cups, we also contested in Austriacups and international competitions. The fever had almost seized us. With the admission to the ski school in Stams the sport became of course much more serious and targeted and at suddenly it was clear:
I want to become a ski jumper.

Together through thick and thin

It's easier to jump as a duo. Right from the start, me and my brother Stefan were inseparable. So it was clear that we both wanted to do the same sport. For more than 20 years now, we have been traveling the ski jumping hills of this world together, some separately, but always in close contact with one another. It's good to have someone by your side who is going through the same thing and pursuing the same goal. We often talk about technical intricacies and analyze each other's jumps to make progress. It helps me a lot personally and I think and hope him too. American media gave us the name "Huberbrothers" after we took turns winning a competition in Eau Claire, USA and celebrating a double victory in both competitions. We already liked it back then and from then on we decided to design and use a joint logo.



The time for relaxation, vacation, family and friends. But also the time for planning and probably the toughest training of the year when it comes back to the first jump units, there is always a good build-up of strength. That means flaying, sweating and tormenting. Personally, I still enjoy it because it is the cornerstone on which your season is built and therefore very important.


Not exactly normal for a winter sport, but we can train very well on summer hills and so jump through most of the year. There isn't much difference, that's why it's a great time to work on your jumps and the material and to make progress in these areas too. However, there are of course much more pleasant things than wearing a jumping suit in summer at 30 degrees. It helps a lot if you live near a lake where you can cool off.


When the temperatures drop again, we intensify the preparation again. A lot of jumping is on the schedule, the start of the season is getting closer and the anticipation is growing. The temperatures are getting lower again and that's why we are able to jump on cooled ice tracks several times, which is of course a great preparation for the first snow jumps.


Our season goes from mid-November to the end of March. A lot of travel and little time at home, less training, more competitions is on the agenda in this intense phase of the year for us. It's a lot of fun to be on the road with a team like ours and that's why I always look forward to go to competitions and trying to get the best out of myself. But I also love to come home to my family again. This is where I relax best and can then concentrate on my new tasks again as quickly as possible.
