Get to know Jolien better

My favourite cycling route runs through the Vlaamse Ardennen (the Tour of Flanders region of Oudenaarde, Ronse, Kluisbergen, …). Interested in riding this route? Download it here.

 

My favourite training destinations can be found in sunny Mallorca and Mojacar.

Good roads, limited traffic, the ideal areas to train as well for flat rides as uphill. Both regions are real bicycle paradises where I often go on training camp in December and January. If you travel to Mallorca, then this route is a must. If you want to discover the region around Mojacar, then I can recommend Kortweg Cycling Travel (info@kortweg.be).

 

How it started? I started cycling at the age of twelve. After 6 years of athletics I was looking for a new challenge. At that age I was already crazy about cycling. After much whining my desperate ☺ parents offered me a bike. During the next summer holidays I joined a bicycle training camp with my nephew. At the end of the camp I received a licence. The start of a fun and exciting adventure!

 

My favourite music: dance and house, the style of Lost Frequencies, Kygo, Klingande, Felix Jaehn, Felix Zimma, … You can follow me at any time on Spotify via this link.

When warming up for a time trial or a track race the tones of

are beating through the headphones.

 

Greatest sporting experience: Olympic Games 2012 & 2016

 

My dream job: exercise physiologist in a sports medical training centre

 

My favourite cardinal sins: eating spareribs at the Amadeus restaurant (of course only after the cycling season) and shopping, mainly related to my shoe addiction (as well during as after the cycling season ☺)
