Bart Brentjens, Team Director CST PostNL Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team :
“We are happy to announce Fini will continue with the Team towards the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021. For already 5 years we are working together. Fini started in the team as an U23 rider with high ambitions and motivated to make the long climb to the top of international mountainbiking with the highest goal, to join the Olympic Games.
Fini is 25 years ‘young’ now, an energetic talented rider and he is still developing himself as a strong all-round professional mountainbiker.
We are happy the Team and Fini will work together again in the next Olympic year and that we stay together on this journey. We started this #GoTokyo2020 road together and it will be great to reach this goal in Tokyo next summer.”

I know all the staff, the atmosphere is always good and I feel comfortable here, which is important for my performance in races and training.
I am sure the team and I can achieve some really good results together.
I’m beyond happy that even in these uncertain Corona times, the team has faith in me. That means a lot to me.

I will do my very best together with the team.”
