Joep was not a standard student. He chose not to work full-time after his studies, but to start a dual career: he consciously focuses on his sporting ambitions and also works part-time through the 'Gold in the Workplace' project of NOC * NSF and Randstad. He won the Dutch competition of the RBR Series with Unltd, competes in the French competition for Team Noyon Triathlon and regularly represents the Netherlands in international competitions. In addition to his ambitions on the road, Joep also made a trip to the cross disciplines last year, both cross duathlon and cross triathlon.
So his life revolves around multisport, and his week is all about training, training, and ... racing. With the aim of reaching the European and world top.
