In this podcast we interview Jasper Verkuijl. Jasper started with BMX racing when he was 5 years old following in the footsteps of his big brother. He ended up racing BMX at a very high national and international level until his early twenty's. We talk about getting in to flight-school and road racing which brought him amazing adventures and experience racing in the US and the Netherlands both at Elite (P,1,2) level. What are the differences between racing in the US and the Netherlands?
We talk about balancing his racing, work, family and a popular youtube channel. An amazing insight in the life of Jasper and his cycling fanatics community.
P.s. Tip! Listen to the birds whistle ;-)
What's Up Cycling FANATICS!
Welcome to my channel where you will find video's about rides and races in a lot of different places all around the world! I make Vlogs & video's with tips and tricks on training, maintenance, riding etc.
Until now I've been riding my road bike in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Curacao, Seoul, Hongkong, Sydney, Mallorca, Denmark, France and off course The Netherlands.
I started cycling when I was 5, on a BMX bike. I've been racing BMX for many many years and had great accomplishments. Including podium spots on European and World Championships, of which I'm really proud of. I have transferred to the road bike in 2013 and only started racing road races last year! (2017).
