Expertise

I`m working for a cycleshop in Amsterdam and know a lot a cycling, especially race and mountainbiking. I raced several years with succes by the amateurs. So for all your questions about products or clothing you can ask me for advice.

Experience in the area

Trying to ride the Grand Raid Cristalalps tour.

What do you like about this subject?

I am working in a cyclingstore with all kind of sportbikes, mountain and race, hybrids, parts, and all kind of clothinggear. So don't hesitate to ask me all about this!!!

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

More training than last year and ride in unknown or little marathonraces, and maybe again the Cristalalp which i didn't make it last year.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

I was lucky to make from my hobby my profession. It is a nice job to work with people who also like cycling as well.
