Favorite pro rider(s) I don’t have a specific favorite but I like for example Julian Alaphillipe, Mathieu van der Poel. Because they have an attacking style of racing which I really like. I also really like to watch time trailists in general. Especially when they’re giving attention to every detail.

Why did you start cycling?
I like the feeling you’re free on the bike. You can go where ever you want and that’s something I really like. And ofcourse I love the competition in the sport. 

Name your specialties:
I don’t have discovered my specialties yet. Last year I really focussed on time trailing because I really like that discipline. It came out really good with some good results.
What do you do besides cycling?
Hang out with my friends most of the time. I also have an office job which I do 10 hours a week.

Tell us your goals for 2021. 
Keep on learning from all the staff and teammates. 

What’s your favorite race in the 2021 calendar?
Of course all of the time trails. I also really like short stage races with a time trial, for example Triptyque. But my favorite race of all time is Paris-Roubaix. It has that heroic feeling which you don’t find in any other race, but sadly both got canceled
What’s your dream race to win at the pros in the future?
 World Championships.
