Why did you start cycling?

I used to do a lot of sports like football, running, kick box, swimming but cycling attracted me the most. When I rode my first good bike I started also my first race which I won, so I knew that is the sport that I will stuck into.

Name your specialties:

I am still finding my self, but I can say I have a good sprint, I can deliver power in a short hill and I can do a pretty good TT.

What do you do besides cycling?

I still study and I like to hang out with friends too. 

Tell us your goals for 2019. 

To become a better and complete rider, learn a lot from my teammates and try to win some races.

What’s your favorite race in the 2019 calendar?

I don’t have a specific race in mind, but I like the classics and all the one-day races in Belgium and Holland. 

What’s your dream race to win at the pros in the future?

Paris Roubaix and World Championships.
