Our mechanics play a vital role in making sure all equipment is in perfect condition and ready to use. Without them, the riders wouldn’t be able to perform at the level we all wish. From taking care of our service course in Eindhoven to assisting riders on the road, the work performed by these mechanics is highly valued by everyone within SEG Racing Academy. Now let’s see what they have to say about themselves!
Tessel Sprengers // Head of Mechanics & Service Course Manager
“During the 2019 season I will be supporting the riders during the races as a mechanic. My goal is to keep the bikes in the best conditions, so the riders can ride for victory! Besides that I am working on Service Course to prepare all the material for the races. Cycling means a lot to me! Since I was a little kid I loved riding bikes. It’s just a perfect feeling to be outside and riding on such a nice piece of technology! My goal for the 2019 season is to keep the bikes in the best conditions so the riders have great bikes to get the best out of themselves”
Panos Theocharis // Mechanic
“My main duty within SEG Racing Academy is to provide any technical support needed, before, during and after a race or the preparation period. In addition to this, I am in charge of driving the truck of the team, carrying all the bicycles and their whole equipment and fixing whatever needed. I have a very special connection to cycling as currently I own a bike shop, and it is the first Tacx Demo Station and Zwift Certified shop in Greece, and I keep on riding by myself in many road races in my area or on the trainer.”
Mario Wouters // Mechanic
“My connection with cycling is my own passion for riding race bikes. I love to cycle because it’s a piece of freedom and investment for your body and soul. It does mean a lot to me because this is my favorite habit in my spare time. My main goal during this cycling season is to take the team to a higher level by applying my knowledge and skills within the Academy organisation.”
Ashlyn van Baarle// Mechanic
“Cycling in my family goes way back, so I am really happy of being part of this team. There’s a special connection between a mechanic and a bike, and I feel like all the mechanics at the Academy we want to set the bikes perfectly for the riders to ride and win as much races as possible”.
Wies Terryn// Mechanic
“I am really proud and happy to be part of this family. I can play my part in the team success by assisting the riders during the race if they have a mechanical and setting up their bikes in the best possible way. It really feels like you are part of a big family here!”
Maarten Walravens// Mechanic
“My goal here is to do everything in my hand so the riders has to forget about the bike and they can focus on racing and strategy, because they know that the bike won’t let them down at the most important moments”.
