Meet Sebastian. Like many Dutch riders, Sebastian has earned honours in cyclocross where he has twice finished on the podium of his national championship in the U23 category. He credits the cyclocross with giving him strength and precision on the road.
This talented multi-discipline rider has been hailed as a potential classics contender seen in his win at the 2011 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Sebastian intends to continue making strides in these types of races.
His career has been a steady progression through Rabobank’s ranks. Sebastian rode his first grand tour, the Vuelta a España, in 2007 at the age of 22. Since then, he has ridden the Tour de France and another Vuelta, and it’s this versatility that saw him signed to the GreenEDGE squad.
