You are a family man. What is your favorite family tradition?
“I just like being at home with my wife and our four children. We hang out, go out to dinner or catch a movie.”
What do you like most about the new SRAM eTap AXS?
“It works really well. There are no cables and it’s very light. The handling and the changing gears hardly cost any effort. “
What would be your advice to your three sons or your daughter if they wanted to be a bike rider?
“First of all, I would love if they would take up cycling but they like and play football. But I would give them the same advice as I would give when it was about cycling: always have fun in what you are doing!”
Your family is important to you. Has fatherhood changed you as a rider?
“You mean in avoiding risks and all? No, you can’t really do that. Of course, you think about them but if you start to doubt or avoid risks, you already lost.”
