Biography of Michaël
Mental coach Michael Verschaeve can call himself a member of The Wolfpack since December 2019. With his experience in guiding athletes – mainly cyclists, football players and swimmers – musicians and performers, he provides our riders with individual, tailor-made guidance.
Michael hails from the music industry, having been a professional drummer for a long time. For 16 years he was part of the Belgian rock band The Van Jets, with which he played no less than five times at Rock Werchter. After the band quit, the Gent resident devoted himself fully to sports psychology and mental coaching. Playing the drums remains a hobby, just as cycling. Ronde van Vlaanderen, Paris – Roubaix and the Tour de France are among his favourite races. “I grew up with them”, he explains. “I remember heroic stages in the Tour, that we used to watch on TV with the window shutters half down. You don’t forget moments like that.”
