Tour de France

Originally from a hockey and tennis background, Casper’s love for cycling began after watching the Tour de France; he thought it looked fun and decided that he wanted to give it a go.

It didn’t take too long for the young Dutch rider to become hooked on the sport and he soon focused on all things two wheels; competing both on the road and on the track. Having impressed the team with strong results, including the win at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne juniors, Casper  is excited to be part of the Development program and its “big family” atmosphere.

A driven individual Casper enjoys the freedom of cycling but also the competitive side of the sport too, challenging himself to improve.

“I like to complete the goals that I have on the bike. I often sit and look at my data and see where I have made improvements and that motivates me to get even better in the future.”

Level-headed, Casper likes the team aspect of the sport and is excited to learn and grow as a rider with the Development program.

“When a rider wins in a team, 99 percent of the time the team has had a big say in that and I think that’s something really cool and unique about cycling. I don’t feel any pressure when the team is working for me, because I just enjoy what I do. If it doesn’t go right, then you learn from it and just try to improve for the next time.”

Off the bike Casper shares similar interests as most teenagers; relaxing by watching different Netflix series, spending time with his friends and family, and going sailing.
