“I had heard a lot about BEAT and how they were working on revolutionizing the sport of cycling. That appealed to me tremendously. I started looking into BEAT Cycling Club. I saw that even though it’s still a new club, the already recruited staff is very professional and everyone has extensive experience in cycling. I have a lot of confidence in this new team. With all the young guys in this team we can quickly adapt to the BEAT way of working, and we can immediately start showing what we can do!”
