Alpecin-FENIX cyclists’ Mathieu van der Poel and Ronja Eibl will compete at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Both will represent their home countries, The Netherlands and Germany respectively, in the Mountain Bike Cross Country specialty. The men’s race will take place on July 26, while the women’s race will be hosted the next day on July 27.

Van der Poel and Eibl come from busy and successful cycling seasons. The Dutch Alpecin-FENIX captain wore Tour de France’s yellow jersey for six days after winning stage 2.  Meanwhile, the German cyclist’s solid performance led her to the top10 in the XCO World Cup.

These will be the first Olympic Games for these young yet talented athletes. We wish them well in their endeavor!
