WELCOME FRANKY!Meet our new sports director
We are delighted to announce that Franky Van Haesebroucke will join our team as sports director for the 2017 season.
Franky picked up cycling himself at the age of 12, but already had been around cyclists his whole life since his father was a sports director with different professional teams. He eventually grow to become a pro himself and has raced for 8 years on the highest level. Since 2002, so for 15 years now, he has been a sports director for several teams in both men’s and women cycling across all continents. Last year he has been sports director at the Veranda’s Willems team.
“I’ve been a sports director for the Wiggle-Honda team (2014) so switching back to women cycling shouldn’t be too hard. Tactically, both men and women cycling are quite similar. Together with Marc (Bracke) and Bart (Faes), we’ll form a great team.”, says Franky.
He’s always had a good relation with our team manager Marc Bracke and likes to work as an underdog. “The team is at the start of something great and I’m really looking forward to be a part of it.”, says Franky.
