Professional Cycling Coach (vanbon-cycling.com) - Former National Cycling Coach KNWU u19 - Talent Coach CyclingClassNL.
Inspired by the great Dutch cyclists of the 70s/80s (Jan Raas, Joop Zoetemelk, Gerrie Knetemann) I started as a 10 year old at the local club as a road and track cyclist.
After several victories on the road and medals at Dutch Championships on the track and my studies in clinical & sports psychology at the University of Amsterdam, I started coaching cyclists and other athletes.
An important motivation for this was that I could help cyclists with the same ambition that I once had to improve their performance. The kind of coaching that I unfortunately had to lack as a young rider.
The love for cycling has always stayed with me. Just like my interest in training theory, sports physiology and performing at a high level.
As a cycling trainer/coach I want to help high-level athletes with their ambition to get the best out of themselves.
