Julius was a rare mid-season call-up to the WorldTour ranks, joining EF Education First Pro Cycling in June of 2018. The Dutchman proved an attractive addition to the team with his attacking style of racing, comfort on the cobbles and ability to suffer in the team time trial.  

Teaching runs in the van den Berg family with his mom, dad and brother all currently serving as teachers. If Julius weren’t a cyclist, he suspects he would follow family tradition and work in a classroom.
