After making his debut with the Development program in 2019, Tim adapted quickly to the increased intensity at the different races he did, where he started to “feel stronger” after some tough racing, before he ultimately made the step up to WorldTour in 2022.
Tim is a pugnacious rider who is always willing to go on the attack for the team or work hard on the front of the bunch, something that is highlighted as one of the reasons he loves the sport.
“It’s a bit strange but I really enjoy hurting myself during races and knowing that you have given it your all when you step off the bike at the end of the day. I especially found that this year with the team when we were all working together; it feels good.”
Hailing from a cycling family, both of Tim’s parents rode bikes and his dad was an amateur cyclist who stopped racing at around the age of 23. Although he played other sports, especially football, he admits he “wasn’t the best” at that and went looking for something else to do. Joining a local cycling club after some advice from his parents, Tim hasn’t looked back since and has grown as a rider year on year.
