Remco's biography

Remco’s trajectory was quite an unusual one: before making the switch to cycling, he was into football, and a very good and promising player for that matter. But something changed in the spring of 2017, when he went out for a training ride, which was followed shortly by his first ever race. From that moment on, in the space of just one year and a half, he won everything he could win at that level – World, European and National Championships – as well as a plethora of stage races and even one-day events.

Since turning pro at the raw age of 18, he impressed everybody not only with his unbelievable talent and amazing qualities, but also the maturity well beyond his age. These were just some of the factors that propelled Remco to five wins in 2019, followed by four impressive overall wins (and a total of nine victories) in as many stage races last year – Vuelta a San Juan, Volta ao Algarve, Vuelta Burgos and the Tour de Pologne – and several jaw-dropping records along the way.

Unfortunately, his superb season was cut short at Il Lombardia, where a crash stopped Remco from making a highly-anticipated Grand Tour debut at the Giro d’Italia. What will 2021 bring for the 21-year-old, who so far has set a number of records in the world of cycling? Stick around, we’ll find out together!
