A talented rider both on the track and on the road, Enzo joined the Development program in 2020, with the Dutchman attracted to the professionalism of the team.

“I really like the development structure, it spoke to me. I like the way the team outline the goals and the plans for me, and how they deal with people’s development.”

2019 was a good year for Enzo in his final season as a junior, where he finished an impressive second place in the time trial at the World Championships in Yorkshire and swiftly followed that up with a spirited fourth place in the road race. Hitting the ground running in the U23 ranks, Enzo was part of the team’s TTT win at Ronde de l’Isard and finished an impressive seventh in the European U23 TT against older opposition

Hailing from a cycling family, with his dad and sister both riding bikes, Enzo was also interested in several other sports as a youngster, including judo, speed skating and swimming before he decided to focus fully on cycling. Despite his own strong results, Enzo is also a willing team player.

“I like to work for others as well. For example, in most races if it is a sprint then that’s not my strength. But I really enjoy helping those that can win and if they do, it feels the same if I crossed the line first.”

Enzo wants to continue to improve himself with his internal motivation and passion for the sport, utilising the team’s various experts and learning from those around him.

“I always just want to keep getting better. I hope I can do my part in the team and help to get good results.
