Theresa Bauml – Ossa will turn seventeen years old late next month, however despite her tender age she has already began to make her mark on the FIM Women’s Trial World Championship. The German teenager produced a sensational ride on the second day of last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix to take her place on the podium beside the more established protagonists of Rebekah Cook – Beta and Emma Bristow - Sherco respectively. This served to reinforce the excellent and career best fifth place she had achieved just twenty-four hours earlier.
Bauml made her debut in the FIM Women’s Trial World Championship back in 2010 aged just twelve years old, and acquitted herself well first time out as she finished inside the top twenty in the Czech Republic. A year later in the same country Theresa scored her first point as she placed fifteenth despite still not having yet celebrated her fourteenth birthday. 2013 marked the young German rider’s fourth season as part of the series, a year when she finished tenth in the final rankings.
2014 has without doubt been Bauml’s best campaign to date, with a rostrum placing to her name and a real chance of ranking in the top five overall when the current edition of the FIM Women’s Trial World Championship comes to a close later today in Andorra
