Why did you start cycling?
I played water polo when I was younger. As soon as I didn’t enjoy it as much as I used to, I started to search for a new sport. My father and I did some rides on our bikes through the dunes, and that’s where it all started!
Name your specialties:
I don’t have a real specialty yet. My climbing abilities are pretty good, so is my time trial and uphill sprint. A bit all-round for now, we’ll see what happens in the future.
What do you do besides cycling?
I am studying Small Business & Retail Management at the moment.
Tell us your goals for 2018.
In 2018 I want to see my line of progress grow as it has grew for the past years. I want to see myself win a race, ride fast uphill and smash some TT´s and be a teamplayer. But above all, I want to enjoy whay I do and make it count!
What’s your favorite race in the 2018 calendar?
I liked the Giro de valle d´aosta a lot, I have a some revanche I have to get there and thats why I´m really looking forward to start there again in 2018!
What’s your dream race to win at the pros in the future?
That would be a stage in the Tour de France.
