As a nine year old boy Yannic started his sports life, playing table tennis at the local sports-club. The passion for cycling aroused seven years later, when he received his first roadbike for birthday and decided to change the racket and the sticky gymnasiums for the freedom on two wheels.
Now, that fourteen years have passed, Yannic can look back on eleven years of racing bikes on elite level around the globe. And it's still so much more than just pedalling fast...
2021 he'll be racing as an Elite Cyclist for MINITeamDN CT, the 8th year in a row. Not just for results, but for the love of it.
