DYLAN TEUNS (Bahrain McLaren)

I got to know Billy at the end of 2012. At that time I was only 20 years old and riding for the Belgian Continental Team Ventilair - Steria.
Since Billy and 10SPEED HR assist me, my cycling career has been gaining momentum.
They contacted Rik Verbrugghe who proposed me to move to the Development Team of BMC.
Thanks to 10SPEED HR I could focus now fully on cycling which immediately paid off. In 2014 I won stages in the Giro Ciclistico della Valle d'Aosta,  the Tour de l'Avenir and Le Tour de Bretagne which ultimately lead to a pro contract with BMC. In 2018 I moved with their assistance to Bahrain McLaren. Meanwhile we did together a long exciting journey: "from Ventilair - Steria to a stage win at La Planche des Belles Filles in the Tour de France 2019".     


Billy became my riders' agent in 2000. Throughout the years this professional relationship evolved into true friendship, having as one of its' highlights our outburst of pure happiness at the finishline after winning the Amstel Gold Race in 2009.

My collaboration with Billy did not stop at the end of my cycling career. When I started up my bicycle shop to secure my future in my 2nd homeland Belgium, he advised me to contact Frederic of 10SPEED HR to help me with all employment related aspects of my staff.  Having the opportunity to challenge my business decisions with experts as Billy and Frederic is a great relief for me!  


At the end of the season 2012 I had difficulties finding a new team after been riding for Team Katusha and Rusvelo. Luckily, via Sergey Ivanov, I got to know Billy and Frederic. They started immediately their search for a new team. Thanks to their efforts I could continue my career as professional cyclist in the Dutch continental team de Rijke - Shanks. Saved by this year of transition, I could give my career a new boost which ultimately lead to a new contract in the Pro Team Tinkoff Saxo in 2013 and helping Peter Sagan winning the Tour of Flanders 2016.
