Welcome! How nice that you visit my website. For those who do not know me yet, I am Steven Lammertink a professional cyclist by Vital Concept – B&B Hotels. Cycling is not like football, that you live at the base of your team. As football player should that be French for me. But as cyclist I am currently exploring Spain with my girlfriend.
On my website you come across stories about the races that I join, also will I share other posts with you. These messages can contain various themes, from eating till cleaning my bicycle.
Passion for Sports
I have always been active. First I started cycling, for laying a base for iceskating in the winter. Like many iceskaters do. I also did speedskating in the summer, not only training sessions, but also competitions. In addition, as a small boy, I also tried other sports, like every boy I played football. But football wasn’t a sport for me. I also stepped-up a horse back, gymnastics etc. But my heart was with cycling and I have been focusing on cycling since the age of seventeen.
The battle against the clock
My specialty is riding against the clock. At the category Under-23 I became European Time Trial Champion. After the EC I started as an intern at LottoNL-Jumbo (but I was already a trainee at Giant-Shimano in 2014) and I was allowed to sign a contract there for 2 years. My first year as a Prof was hard and I learned a lot from this. Now I have been cycling for a year with the French team Vital Concept – B&B Hotels. A French team means that the official language in the team is French, so most people in the team are French. I took French lessons in advance so I get familiar with the language. Because before I signed up with the team, I could not speak a single word of French. At first, it was a difficult and I had to learn fast. But for now I can say it is a beautiful and valuable experience.
By sharing my stories on social media and via this blog, I want to motivate everyone to follow his / her passion and of course give an inside in the life of a top athlete.
