Cycle sierra nevada Scholarship Program
From 2014 we will be providing a number of opportunities for young cyclists, both male and female, to take part in one of our training camps completely free of charge. Cycle Sierra Nevada will be offering a number of places each year on their Scholarship Program to young athletes in an attempt to assist them in their aspiring careers.
PASCAL EENKHOORN - AVIA CT - THE NETHERLANDS
WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Pascal Eenkhoorn, I’m 17 years old, almost 18, and I live in The Netherlands.
WHO DO YOU RIDE FOR?
For the past two years I rode for Enertherm-BKCP, a cyclocross team, but in 2015 I'll ride for the Belgium Avia Cycling Team.
Sometimes I ride alone, but in the winter, when I do long rides, I got a good partner named Bas Tietema, he is riding for the BMC Devo Team. When Bas is home there is a big possibility that we train together, but when he is alone I train alone the most of the time, there aren't many cyclists over here...
WHY DID YOU START CYCLING?
This new road season will be my 11th season in cycling. I started at category 1, the first one in The Netherlands. Before I did ice skating and speed skating and because of ice skating I started to train cycling. I loved racing on my bike more and that is why I chose for cycling.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT CYCLING?
I just love my bike, I love it to train, even when it is raining. It is just because you get a kick when you finished your ride and are satisfied with it.
FAVOURITE PIECE OF CYCLING KIT/BIKE ETC.?
Since one year I have a SRM and I love it. Because it gives you a lot of information and it looks beautiful :)
KEY GOALS FOR NEXT SEASON?
I have a lot of goals for my next season but I think it is better to keep them to myself and just try to be as good as possible ;)
HOPES/PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
Hopefully a professional career at the highest level!
