ABOUT Sergio Tu

Joining Team Sunweb’s Development Program for the 2018 season, 19-year-old Sergio Tu is motivated to maximise on the professionalism and structure within the team. A strong believer that these are the essential ingredients for a rider to make the most out of themselves, Tu looks forward to being able to learn from the older and more experienced riders on the WorldTour program, as well as the staff. “No matter if it’s a mental or physical problem, I know there will always be someone I can go to for advice.”

A big dreamer and strong believer, Sergio believes that nothing is impossible and hopes to one day ride the Tour de France. “I’ve watched this race since I was a young boy and it’s my dream to compete there one day myself.”

Alongside cycling Tu’s interests lie in health, nutrition and the body. “Knowing as much as I can about myself and how my body works can only make me into a better a cyclist. It will help me to recognise problems early on as well as identify any improvements that could benefit my development.”

The young Taiwanese talent looks forward to working for his fellow team mates. “I want to support the team and give my all for them wherever I can. I want to learn from those that have been with the team longer and take as much as I can from the varied race program.”
