A talented climber Henri reaffirmed his position in the U23 peloton, doubling-up on his Baby Giro podium from 2020 with a strong third place finish in 2021 after some brilliant riding by the team.
With one year in the Development program and taking advantage of the relatively recent rule change, Henri has been able to ride with the Men’s program on several occasions already in 2021 – something that he thinks will ease his transition to the WorldTour.
A fan of being outdoors, Henri fully embraces the cyclist’s lifestyle and enjoys everything that comes along with it. Whether that be the travelling you get to do to go to races, the scenery you see while riding or the friends you make over the years, he thinks it’s a “nice environment” to be in.
Intelligent and thoughtful, Henri doesn’t put any extra pressure on himself in terms of results and instead focuses on following the processes and aiming at non-result-based goals.
A proper cyclist, Henri spends most of his downtime relaxing and recovering on the couch while not doing much else or catching up with his friends and family.
