Rider Q and A

Q&A with Casper van Uden

Newsletter

This month we asked you on our social media channels if you had any questions for Casper van Uden. Finding some time in his busy off-season schedule, Casper sat down to answer our favourite ones!

Q: Who or what inspires you the most in your career?

A: The person within cycling that inspires me a lot is Chris Froome. I think he’s one of the most mentally strong riders and the amount of dedication he has is really inspiring and very special.

Q: Favourite race you’ve done?

A: Ooh, it’s hard to say what my favourite race is so far but I think it is a race where there was a lot of fans and crowd, so probably the World Championships this year. The atmosphere was really good, the amount of people and noise was incredible; it just gives you goosebumps.

Q: What race would you most like to win in the future?

A: The race I would most like to win is probably the World Championships. Being able to then ride in that rainbow jersey for a year is something that is really amazing and special.

Q: How many Warzone wins do you have? (asked by fellow cyclist Lars Boven!)

A: I actually don’t know how many Warzone wins I have! I think around 20? Me and my friends mostly play the Rebirth game mode and there I don’t really for the wins either. I mostly enjoy it to play with my friends and talk to each other and have a laugh, which is good fun

Q: What kind of hair products do you use?

A: I use two types of hair products! I use volume cream because my hair is quite straight so I use that to get some volume in it, and then I also sometimes use some hair wax to then make sure it sits right but of course when you’re on the bike with your helmet on, it doesn’t matter too much!
