ABOUT Lucinda Brand

Since 2017 Lucinda Brand has been on the front line of Team Sunweb, bringing a lot of experience and knowledge. She started racing in 2009 as a professional cyclist at Team AA From 2013 till 2016 she was part of team Rabobank-Liv.

Lucinda gained fame with her impressive long solo breakaway at the Dutch Championship in 2013. In 2015 she wore her national colours at races when she won this title for the second time. Lucinda also took a couple of impressive results at the Giro Rosa in 2015. “I didn’t expect to finish second in the prologue. Wearing the pink jersey was an amazing feeling.”

The 27 year old rider is not only successful on the road, in 2016 she won the silver medal at the cyclo-cross European Championships. “These two disciplines are so different from each other. Cyclo-cross is quite new for me, so there’s still much I can learn. I like the road races because they are less predictable. It’s more about tactics and a team effort. For the time being, I’d like to combine both disciplines.” 

“I enjoy riding races the most, but I am also starting to like training more and more. Maybe because I now realise how useful it is. I always try to enjoy my surroundings during my training. I try to plan my rides through places I’ve never visited before.”

Lucinda has learned a lot about the human body during her Ergo Movement studies. “This knowledge coupled with my interest in training techniques, has helped me to develop as a cyclist.”
