Jordi van Loon steps out of comfort zone

This weekend will be all about firsts. Sunday’s omloop van de Houtse linies will be the first race where one of our riders will take on the role of sportive director. Jordi van Loon will be in charge of tactical decisions and the strategy. He will take place in the team car next to Frank Pennings who will be his assistant during the whole process.

The philosophy behind this is simple, we want our talents to develop into complete riders. The team management wants to make the riders aware of the tasks that seem obvious to them. The riders on the bike have to execute the race plan, afterwards they reflect on the race and what has happened during. When our riders turn pro they have seen every aspect of cycling. It doesn’t only develop them as riders it makes them complete as human beings.
