Inspired by watching Andy Shleck win solo on the Col de Galibier in the Tour de France, Nils first took his city bike to the Limburg Hills to train. Heavy and cumbersome, he soon upgraded to a road bike and started racing in the Dutch system just six years ago.

Coming from the same town as Team Sunweb leader and Giro d’Italia winner Tom Dumoulin, Nils has never been short of inspiration, even joining Tom on a few club training runs.

Joining Team Sunweb’s development program this season, Nils is hoping to make a big step up.

“When I look at training and nutrition, with the sponsors and partners with Team Sunweb, I am confidence I will succeed here. The environment, the possibilities of this team – it’s unique and this is the best team for an Under-23 rider to be in. You have the chance to progress directly to the World Tour team too afterwards, that was a big appeal for me. You have a real advantage being here.”

Half Dutch, half German Nils favours hilly races and time-trialling and has big aims to develop in to a GC threat, having already won Omloop Simpelveld, finished second in a stage of the Capathian Couriers Race in Latvia and claimed a top five in the national road race last year, after an aggressive race.

Open-minded, trustworthy and loyal, Nils is already fluent in Dutch, German and English and is trying to learn Spanish – always aiming to better himself. He will balance training and racing with Team Sunweb alongside a degree in International Business, while also striving to become a professional WorldTour rider. Away from cycling, Nils loves football, supporting Hamburg.
