De BEMC marathon. Het kleine broertje van de BEMC 3-daagse rittenwedstrijd is een marathon verreden in en rond Bertrix in het hart van de Belgische Ardennen. 100km met daarin 2700 hoogtemeters verstopt. Ik zeg verstopt, maar eigenlijk slaan ze je ermee om te oren. Een kleine flashback. Precies 12 maanden geleden stond ik ook aan de start deze wedstrijd. Zonder ervaring maar met een goed vormpeil na training in Oostenrijk. Die dag zette een beetje een trend voor het einde van 2017. Vallen na...

As you all probably know, it's been quite a while since I last posted something new on my website. I've not been away or anything, i've just been carefully planning my next move. I wanna take this website to a new level and to do that, I need a bit of planning and preparation. So, i promise, lots of stories and adventures are coming online soon. But for now, here are some new videos from me riding with my mates the last couple of weeks. Winter is coming, so it's getting pretty cold. But the...

27th of august 2016. La Roche en Ardenne. 8:48am. One of my main goal race is about to start. I'm feeling good, although slightly in the unknown about my form, as my recent races hasn't really been going to plan. But, there's nothing I can do about that know so i'm gonna give it my all and then it should be enough for a gold medal. The day promises to be a nice one. With temperatures up to 38degrees celsius. Maybe a little to hot for racing in the hills, but better than in the rain. I'm riding...

Today is the day before our main race of this year. The Velomediane Claudy Criquilion. With its 174km and 3800 altitude meters it's one of the toughest sportives out there. Maybe only La Marmotte comes close to this experience. We left around mid day so we could have an easy ride into town to "warm up the legs" as they say. Apart from some traffic jams we had a nice ride towards our little hostel. Yes hostel, not hotel. It's like being 16 again on a school trip. But it's fun. A nice place with...

As some of you might know, we have a small group of riders we ride with on Wednesdays and during the weekend. Even though sometimes it's hard to get everyone together, we try to keep in touch en ride together at least once a week. Today was no exception even though today was only me and my mate Piet Boom.

As you may have read in my older posts. I made a deal with my girl, she would try to train 3 times a week. Now, 4 weeks in, her improvements are incredible. The first ride, it was difficult to even to 20k at an average speed of 22km/h. Today we did a 46k ride at an average speed of 26,2km/h. The endurance is building, but more important, she's more confident on the bike. Even lifting the front wheel for small gaps in the road. I'm impressed. Keep up the good work babe. Thank you for reading my...

Personally I try to do several things. But most important is stretching and resting.

In trying to get more used to transition between cycling and running i'm going to train this the coming weeks. How? Well, simply by cycling at least 90km and afterwards running at least 10km. And more importantly, trying to do a lot of mile repeats at race pace. This is so my body can get used to the hard effort immediately after coming of the bike. I know it's not the full length of my Ironman 70.3 goal, but the long run effort I'll do at another time in the week. Also, my endurance is already...

Today was going to be tough. Planned for a hard 125km bike ride and after an immediate transition into a 11km run.

As some of you might know, my girlfriend likes to cycle as well. Not as often as she would like, but nevertheless she likes it. Now that she's enjoying her summer holiday we made a deal to go cycling every other day. At least try to do that. Therefor she can get used to the bike and build some endurance. So, today, after completing my own training, we had a quick diner and went on our way.
