Place of residence: Meppel (The Netherlands)
Experience: Started cycling in 2020 after 14 years of BMX, in the same year I rode my first race at the encouragement of club mates. In 2021 I participated in some ZAC races, and decided to do my best and become successful.
Skills: Sprinting on the flat and uphill is my thing, it has similarities with BMX, and therefore it is probably one of my best qualities.
Goals: Riding races and finishing in the top 20, improving my FTP, and staying injury-free.
"At the age of 16, I was already introduced to competition and training plans in the BMX sport under professional guidance.
After stopping with the BMX sport and starting with cycle racing, it soon became clear to me that also in this sport some form of professional guidance would be appropriate. Cycling aimlessly and not knowing whether you are doing the right things is not the way to the top in my opinion, and the top is where I want to go.
Alan's training pland are tailor-made, i.e. it fits perfectly into my daily schedule of school, side job, leisure time and of course my goals. And seeing your progress through TrainingPeaks motivates me of course."
