A rider for Skil-Shimano between 2006 and 2010, Piet Rooijakkers makes a return to the team in 2019 as their newly appointed R&D expert.

After his pro career, Rooijakkers worked in the accounting industry, expanding his club team towards UCI Continental level as a hobby. One of its first members back in 2006, Rooijakkers rejoins the team to aid managing technical research and development projects.

 

“I was one of the team’s first members in the current structure with Iwan [Spekenbrink] starting as general manager in 2009, and it feels good to be back in familiar territory.”
