A couple of years ago I had several interesting discussions with Billy Reynders, who I knew already for many years, about cycling in general and his experiences as manager of some very successful cyclists.
During those discussions Billy convinced me that my professional experiences in human resources management would certainly have an added value for the cycling world. Instead of staying at the side-line and remaining a supporter of this great sport, I finally decided to step into a thrilling new challenge, 10SPEED HR was born.
In September 2012 I passed the exam of Riders' Agent, organized by the UCI.
My focus and main interest lays in all aspects of social security, UCI-regulations and employment relations (riders' contracts, application of the joint agreements on the working conditions, ...).
You may find more info about me on my Linkedin profile.
10SPEED HR is working closely together with Belgium based lawyer Billy Reynders who is responsible for the contract negotiations with the UCI Pro Teams and Procontinental Teams. During the last 15 years Billy has built up an enormous experience as the passionate manager of numerous top cyclists such as Marc Wauters (stage winner and yellow jersey of the Tour de France), Sergey Ivanov (6 times National Road Champion of Russia, winner of the Amstel Gold Race, E3-Prijs, 2 Tour de France stages, ...) and Wilfried Cretskens (winner Tour of Qatar).
Via Billy we also dispose of an important network of international connections so that we can you give all necessary assistance.
