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.

“The team is so organised and I need that, the protocols to follow. I can use the training to my advantage, as well as having the pro team and other aspects to benefit from. I look up to Tom Dumoulin, he really is a big thing in world cycling and I love watching him race in the mountains, doing his thing. I want to ensure with Team Sunweb I start to race smarter and learn how to win races.”

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.

“It has always been a dream of mine to turn pro, so you are motivated to work hard towards that one goal, as well as getting a good result, or helping the team achieve a result. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is ride my bike, and when I come home I recover. What I am doing now is what I need to do to develop and evolve as a cyclist, in the best way I can. Cycling drives me in life.”

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.
