Hi everyone
Welcome to my website, here you can find everything about my life as a cyclist. Or also available on my dream!

Because that's it, I'm living my dream.
One day I decided to go for cycling and that's what I do every day.

How I got there on I hear you?
Here I'll tell you my story!

As a child I always wanted to bike, I was a shy but stubborn toddler with a mind of her own. I was in the street much older neighbor girls who were already cycling. I could not yet but I soon brought change. I set my sights on the learning cycle and soon tore the speelpleintje next to our house, first with training wheels and when I was older I really wanted without training wheels. I applied just not really a bike. My parents had been alone a bicycle, but it was still too big for me. My grandmother was a fair a tiny bike. Perfect for me, I was careful. So the real cracks could begin without the training wheels. When I was about 9/10 I first drove a fat tire race. That was so cool! The result was not very good but I had so been enjoying myself .. I got a taste and wanted more fat tires ride races, first in Nootdorp, Berkel en Rodenrijs, Pijnacker and later we also went to the Westland. I could do it a few times to NK fat tires race because I had already been a number of times on stage.

Meanwhile, I was joined by Tour Club Pijnacker. I got a rental bike race and every Sunday I loved going here as shy girl cycling tour trips. Lots of girls were not there, so I often went along with the boys. Quiet and silent I was but I enjoyed it. Nice bikes and occasional competition with the boys. Wonderful I thought if I could win a sprint! In the winter I had already started skating.

I slowly stopped working and was getting more for my sport. I found this a Difficult decision, but in the end especially my friend helped me a lot with this. He always Believed That I could Pursue my dream to Become a professional cyclist. That dream was in the years that i worked a little put off. The dream came up again in 2018 and with the help and trust of the people around me I went for it! Because if I did something I wanted to do well and I want to work hard. My friend moved to Switzerland, and if I could I was ook happy to Switzerland. Train there made me very well! I drove a good season in 2018, many people were impressed with my performance, even in the professional teams I had not Remained unknown. Parkhotel Valkenburg was the first team That Contacted me at the end of the season. And in November I signed a contract for two years at Parkhotel Valkenburg. Now I live as full Professor Racing Star and every day I still get a little better, Hard acknowledge, dreams, believe, trust and enjoy ..

Meanwhile I finished my training in 2017 with Flower Design, and working as a florist at two flower shops, if I had time, I also worked with my father in the greenhouse.

This year I met my friend, when he drove races. We went several weekend trips to the Ardennes to train, sometimes 5.5 hours. I had this really was not and then completely burned, but then noticed that I could recover quickly from there and got progressively better.

In 2018 I went to SwaboLadies, and I started training with Stefan Klink. When I made the biggest steps and I also learned a lot about the price insight! Something brought me very far that year. I did a few times in the year, a stress test and showed me once again that Pro Cycling Star was becoming quite feasible, I put a few times a year goals that I achieved faster than I had expected.
