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 the most of the times. I also have an office job which I do 10 hours a week.

Tell us your goals for 2020. 
Keep on learning from all the staff and teammates. 

What’s your favorite race in the 2020 calendar?
Ofcourse all of the timetrails. I also really like short stage races with a time trail, for example Triptyque monts des et chateaux. But my favorite race of all time is Paris-Roubaix. It has that heroic feeling which you don’t find in any other race.
What’s your dream race to win at the pros in the future?
 World Championships.
