van den Berg: “It feels really special to win like this.”

Julius van den Berg has been part of the team ever since its inception, and last week the 20-year old achieved his most special victory so far, the U23 Dutch time trial title: “I am very happy about it. A time trial is honest racing, so it feels amazing that after riding alone and fighting for every second you can get the win.”
Van den Berg will stand out in the upcoming time trials as he will compete in the Dutch national Jersey: ”Being able to wear the jersey for the upcoming year just after one win it feels amazing, and wearing a red, white and blue jersey it is always special for a Dutchman.”

Three days later, Julius crossed the line fourth but most importantly helped teammate Fabio Jakobsen to keep the national title on his shoulders: “It felt incredible to dominate the Road Race like that in hilly and hard parcour. We made the race and from the very beginning we went on the attack with Hartthijs. When Fabio closed the gap, we played the game really well and we could deliver the victory. When you win a race like that, with just 6 guys and riding as unit, it a a special one.”
