“This team respects individuality. You can be yourself. There’s a lot of respect between riders, staff and directors, and our differences are respected within the group."
Sebastian Langeveld is currently racing his eighth season in argyle. The 2014 Dutch national road champion turned professional in 2006 with Skil-Shimano and has raced for Dutch-, Australian-, and American-registered squads during his 15-year career.
A classics-specialist, Sebastian won Omloop het Nieuwsblad, the spring season opener, in 2011 and rounded out the Paris-Roubaix podium in 2017. Sebastian’s shrewd tactics in the race’s final 20-kilometers of the 2019 Tour of Flanders — smartly slowing down the chasing group — played an integral role in putting Alberto Bettiol on the top step of the podium.
Sebastian lines up for his own alternative races in the off-season, using Netherland’s “beach races” as top-end training during the final weeks of the off-season. Asked to describe himself in one word, Sebastian chose precise. His teammates say stylish.
