Teun van Erp

 

In 2012 Team Sunweb recruited their scientific expert, Teun van Erp. After studying human movement sciences and getting a master’s degree, Teun spent a year working at NOS*NSF, before joining Team Sunweb where he brings analysis of performance to fruition through science.

“After my eight years in the team I have a lot of experience in analysis of training data and bringing science into the team. “

“My favourite races tend to be time trials and team time trials because of the implementation of science and analysis that is required; I find this much more interesting than a road race.”

A cycling fan outside of work, Teun’s heart lays with the classics and Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders are his favourite races. On his days off you can find Teun surrounded by friends, going to festivals and participating in winter sports. He also enjoys football, triathlon, snowboarding and bouldering.

“I want to make the most out of things. I don’t want to look back and realise I’ve missed things because I didn’t.”
