Dreams do come true. In his first ever Grand Tour, Mathieu van der Poel won one stage of Tour de France and wore the Maillot jaune for 6 consecutive days. He kept his promise to his grandad, French cycling legend Raymond Poulidor, that he would wear the yellow jersey one day. Poulidor participated 14 times at la Gran Boucle but never wore the yellow jersey.

Mathieu’s first Tour de France performance is simply outstanding. The team continues to deliver solid results even after Mathieu following stage 10 stage in order to focus on the Olympic Games, which will take place in Tokyo from July 23rd to August 8th.

The endurance and persistence of Mathieu and Alpecin-FENIX team continues to inspire us as a group. Their approach and set of values are why we align the FENIX brand with the cycling team. We believe in passion, dedication and hard work needed to achieve success, but also a group of professionals driven by a continuous desire to improve. We are proud to support Mathieu and every member of the Alpecin-FENIX team.
