Biggest reason is to enjoy being outside but I also like the competition element when riding with friends. Of course it also helps to stay in shape!

Let's meet Ernst-Jan

Do you like to know more about Ernst-Jan and what puts him into action? In a short selection of twelve questions below we try to answer those questions for you.

My joy at FFWD

The environment at FFWD is very inspiring and gives me a feeiing of freedom, fun and the joy of working with a nice and super close team.

My history in cycling

I'm super proud to call myself an IronMan by finishing this race in Maastricht (NL) in 2017. Besides this I have done La Marmotte twice (FR), the Maratona des Dolomites (IT) and the Amstel Gold Race (NL) three times!

My bike(s)

Currently I am riding a Specialized Venge on the road, and a FFWD MTB offroad occasionally. Also own a Ridley Dean TT bike.

My favorite pair of wheels

My current pair of wheels are the RYOT33, a great allrounder with a very nice handling in all conditions (Dutch wind proof)!

My favorite place to ride

I have been cycling in many places around Europe and in general I like to ride in the mountains. A special place for me is Italian region Tuscany, around Lucca. But I also like the the Dutch hills in Limburg!

My goals (in distance)

I'm a happy man when I can cross the 4000 km every year!

My favorite cyclist

A few of my favirite riders are Mathieu van der Poel and Vicenzo Niballi. I like combative riders with a punch the most!

My other interests

In my spare time I like doing maintenance at road and MTB bikes for friends and family. I'm also a big fan of traveling to beautiful destinations like Bali, Australia, Mexico...

My favorite movie

I don't realy have a favorite movie because I don't watch movies a lot. I'm more a fan of series like 'Narcos', 'Breaking Bad' or great documentaries like 'The Last Dance' about Michael Jordan.

My favorite music

The music I like is in a very wide range. There is almost no music I don't like, you can hit by surprise!

My favorite podcast

Pair text with an image to focus on your chosen product, collection, or blog post. Add details on availability, style, or even provide a review.

My social media

The channels I use most for myself are Instagram, Youtube and Strava.
