Now in his third season with the Team Sunweb Development program, Martin has big aims in his last year as an Under-23 rider.

The 21-year-old has a Nations Cup stage win to his name as well as fifth in the 2015 Junior World Championships road race, and third in the National Junior road race.

An all-rounder, Martin favours short, punchy climbs and one-day Classics races and is aiming to prove himself, as well as progressing and securing a stagiaire role for the WorldTour team to ride alongside the likes of team leader Tom Dumoulin and long-serving domestiques Roy Curvers and Johannes Frohlinger.

“I like Team Sunweb’s way of working – the structure of the training and the support we receive. From the start I felt really comfortable and knew I was in good hands. I like the eye of detail in the team, striving for something bigger than yourself and working as a team. Everyone has an idea of how they can contribute.”

Martin started riding at a young age, and after heading to the track, training three times a week, he was eager to start racing as soon as he had his licence.

A determined rider, with a sarcastic sense of humour, Martin has dual nationality as he has British parents living in Germany. He is optimistic in his outlook on life, and speaks Dutch, French, German and English. Off the bike he enjoys reading about history, fantasy, sci-fi or classic novels and biographies.
