At the age of 16, Ute Enzenauer surprisingly became world champion at the UCI road world championships in Prague in 1981 and thus went down in cycling history as the youngest world champion to date. As the youngest starter, she also started with a special permit. In the same year she was voted “ Junior Sportswoman of the Year ”.
In 1986 and 1987 she was German road champion and took third place in the Grande Boucle Féminine (1987) and the Route de France Féminine (1987). At the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles , she finished eighth in the road race. She also raced on the track .
In 1987, at the age of 23, Ute Enzenauer resigned from active cycling because she was nervously unable to cope with the demands of competitive sports. She trained as a pharmaceutical-commercial assistant, now lives in Ludwigshafen and works in the local hospital.
