About Yannic

The Story of a boy racing bikes.

How It All Started

It's so much more than just pedalling fast.

1997 - A little boy joins the local sports-club to play table-tennis. Eight years later, this promising junior decided to quit his old passion, to start a new journey. When I started cycling, I did not know if I was talented or where it might take me, I just did it for fun and this fun became a passion. Cycling took me to places around the world, I probably would never have seen, if I had not become an athlete. Now, after more than ten years of racing bikes on elite level, one thing has not changed: The passion for pleasure and pain. The love for cycling.
