I’m looking forward to work together with the staff, coaches and my team mates. I hope to get the best out of myself via the philosophy of Keep Challenging. This means a step-to-step approach to develop slowly into a professional and strong rider. I hope I can get some good results in 2017 and support my team mates.”
