After joining the team for the 2019 season, the former U23 European road race champion seized his opportunity, learning as much as possible in his opening season at WorldTour level.
Towards the end of 2019, Casper’s season of doing the biggest races would continue as he got the call up to start his first Grand Tour, the Vuelta a España. Like most, he hopes that doing one of the toughest races in the world has a positive effect on his performance in the coming years.
Following up from his Grand Tour debut, Casper has since made two appearances at the Tour de France with the team, claiming his first Grand Tour stage podium at 2021’s edition of the race.
Casper came into the sport almost by accident after borrowing a bike and joining his friend for a training ride with a local club. After that he soon started taking up racing, not looking back since.
An outgoing and talkative person, Casper enjoys the sociable aspect of the sport and being able to go out and train with friends, sharing experiences with them. Looking ahead in his career, Casper is motivated by competing at the biggest races in the world.
After winning Paris-Tours towards the end of the 2020 season, and picking up that Tour podium, Casper will no doubt be wanting to continue that trajectory going into the next season.
