My first big win as a pro, that was Gent-Wevelgem in 2015. I will never forget it because the weather was so bad! It was an amazing feeling.
What is your professional goal for 2017?
I really want to make the step to the highest level of women cycling. We have a really strong team for the upcoming season and hope that we can show a lot this year!
What do you love about cycling?
I really love that you can go anywhere. Even when I am at home, I can go where I want with my bike. I feel free on my bike and I like that!
Why do you love riding for Liv?
I really like riding for Liv. It's nice that it is a real women's brand, and the looks are nice. I think that women cycling is getting bigger and bigger and Liv is a big part of that!
What is one item you would never leave home without?
My hairspray! Haha, I always use hairspray, so I will always take it when I will leave my home for a longer time.
If you could learn a new sport or skill this year, what would it be?
This is a hard question because when I was young I did a lot of differents sports. But I really liked cycling the most. I'm still doing speed skate in the winter and I like the combination.
What is your favorite place to travel?
Lago di Garda, I always go there with my family for holiday and I can train there perfect!
What is your favorite food?
Who is(are) your favorite riding partner(s)?
I train a lot by myself, but I train also a lot with Lennard and Julia, and that are also teammates so that's really nice!
How do you spend your time off the bike?
I like it to catch up with my friends, but I like it also to relax at home and chill.
What do you want to be "when you grow up"?
Words you live by...
Live by the day! And enjoy ever moment! #creatingmemories
