With cycling a national pastime in Belgium, Jens can’t remember a time when he didn’t ride a bike. His earliest cycling memory is going to the Alps with his family to watch the Tour de France. Since then, he has raced across Europe and beyond, so perhaps it isn’t a surprise that he can’t pick just one favorite place to ride. He counts the Dolomites, the Ardennes, and the cobbles of Roubaix among his favorites. When he’s not off racing, you’ll find Jens at home with his two young sons.
