Hi, I am Cas. Even though we do not have mountains in the Netherlands, the area where I live, the Veluwe region, has great mountain bike trails with plenty of elevation. My first bike was a balance bike and I could walk all day with it. A few years later, I got my first real mountain bike! I really liked being in the forest cycling with my family. After some time, I joined the local club and went cycling with my friends. That’s where I did my first races. Later I also did regional and national races. Sometimes I also do races in Europe. In the winter season, I like to do cyclocross.
My greatest successes have been being the National Champion in mountain biking, 2nd place in European Championships for mountain biking and a two time Dutch Champion in cyclocross. Apart from biking, I also like sailing and skiing and spending time in nature with family and friends. I'm really looking forward to this season and being part of the Bar-end Ghost Junior Team.
