Into her eighth season with the team, Julia is one of the more experienced riders within the Women’s program and relishes in her role as road captain.
The title of road captain might seem serious but Julia’s bubbly and vibrant character, coupled with her infectious and outgoing nature is one of the reasons as to why she works so well with the younger riders.
Judo was her first sport but after suffering an injury she turned to the bike and found out that she enjoyed doing that as well. Initially missing the intensity of judo, the adrenaline and speed of racing soon replaced that, and Julia fell in love with the sport.
Driven by seeing improvements both on and off the bike, Julia continuously wants to push her limits.
Off the bike, Julia likes to relax by taking a step away from the cycling world and enjoys spending time with her friends and family; going for food at her family restaurant. Otherwise, you can find her enjoying coffee with Floortje!
