Sports scholar of the yearDuring these international races, she writes her Bachelor's thesis. Without well thought-out time management, however, she would not have managed the double workload. She discusses deadlines with her coach and writes them down in her training diary. "In the three to four days before an exam, I have less training, so it's more about studying." And she always makes sure to take face-to-face modules in winter and do as much remotely as possible in summer.

During these international races, she writes her Bachelor's thesis. The meetings with her supervisor take place exclusively via video conference. Part of the reason why she has been able to complete her studies so well up to this point is that she had already attended most of the courses when she joined her current team, Canyon SRAM Racing, in 2022. German Sports Aid named Ricarda Bauernfeind Sports Scholar of the Year in 2023.
Without well thought-out time management, however, she would not have managed the double workload. The 23-year-old advises: "To manage all of this, you have to organize your day precisely." She discusses deadlines with her coach and writes them down in her training diary. "In the three to four days before an exam, I have less training, so it's more about studying." And she always makes sure to take face-to-face modules in winter and do as much remotely as possible in summer.
