How long have you been riding

In The Netherlands everyone rides a bike from the age of 3-4, but I really started riding in Australia in 2014

Favourite ride of all time and why

For gravel it’s a toss between the plains near Adaminaby where I felt like a cowboy between all the wild brumbies and the Strade Bianche of Tuscany but I have to go with the latter. In the lead up to the first ever UCI World Championships Gravel I had the pleasure of training for 5 days in beautiful Tuscany. The white gravel roads through the vineyards and the historic villages simply took my breath away and made me stop around every corner to take another picture.

For the roadie it is the Stelvio Double Loop which I hope will be surpassed by the Haut Route Alps this year.

Favourite topic of conversation

A philosophical conversation that starts with the dualism of light to “curiosity killed the cat” to the multi universe theory to you can design your own life to “am I?”. Or sharing stories about travel adventures and cultural insights.
