Joining Team Sunweb’s Development program this season has been a long time coming for Tim, who has had his eye on the team for some time at both junior and U23 level. Signing with the team is his greatest achievement in the sport so far.
The 19-year-old, who favours climbing and hilly races, now believes he is the best position to continue his development.
Sociable and chatty, Tim first started cycling aged 10, inspired by his parents who often rode together. He began racing just a month afterwards and has never looked back since. He believes he is highly motivated and determined to achieve his goals.
Tim studied commercial economics (sports marketing) for two years and achieved his first-year diploma, before now fully turning his attention to cycling. Off the bike, he enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing playstation and watching Netflix, especially Shooter, Designated Survivor and action movies.
