Everything new! First of all: happy new year! My new bikeseason starts with the news I shared last week: I joined the Craft Rocky Mountain Factory Team! Super proud and motivated to be part of the rocky family now.
This means that my 2015 season where I was riding for my individual sponsors came to an end. I am super thankful for the oppurtunities and trust my partners/sponsors, family and friends and my trainer gave me. They helped me to follow my dreams and to try to get the best out of myself on the bike. And also you, supporters and friends. It so nice to know that people like what you are doing and try to follow what you do. Thanks!!
2015 was a year full of racing, starting in Africa and ending in the beautiful Swiss Alps. I travel to the greatest places I think, so nice :). A season with ups and downs. Without downs you have no ups. That's part of the job. I think I can say it went really well! Podiums in the Cape Epic, Ischgl, Montafon, Grand Raid, Trans Schwarzwald, Swiss Epic and of course another Dutch Championships win!
Now all the focus is on the coming Cape Epic. My trainingprogram is filled with endurance rides, crossrides, mountainbike specifik rides, powertraining and powerintervals. I like it a lot to train for a big goal.
Okay, take care!
