Caoimhe here with Freddy Jansegers (mechanic of the Belco team) Freddy was one of the instigators to get Caoimhe to Belgium!!
One of my hero’s when growing up …the mountain goat who was feared in the big tours as renowed climber!! Lucien Van Impe, the winner of the 1976 Tour de France, and six times winner of the mountains classification in the Tour de France
Belco/Van Eyck Ladies Team, amateur status, but very much pro in all they do..a great haven of excellence and team spirit for all involved in the team!!
Next race for Caoimhe as invite to the Schaal Sels Criterium with the world champ Lotte Kopecky…what an honour!!
