“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. There’s room to be yourself. I think that’s why riders on the team are happy, and the happiness creates a really nice atmosphere, and the fans, they want to be a part of that, too.”

Sebastian Langeveld is currently racing his seventh 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 14-year career. A classics-specialist, Sebastian won Omloop het Nieuwsblad in 2011 and rounded out the Paris-Roubaix podium in 2017.

 

While Sebastian’s biggest passion and strength lies in the spring season, the 34-year-old excels across disciplines. He lends experience and leadership in stage races and has started the Tour de France in four of his six seasons with the team. His ability to easily maneuver around the peloton is a personal strength turned collective asset that allows EF Education First race leaders to safely conserve on his wheel.

Travel must have?

Headphones

Favorite city?

New York. I've been there a couple times, and I really like the lifestyle there.

Best day on the bike?

My favorite bike moment so far was when I won the Nationals in 2014. That was a really nice moment in my career. Earlier in my career I was a couple of time second and as the years were going by, I thought maybe those years were my chances and six, seven years later I finally had the jersey in Holland it means a lot if you can wear, wear the National Stripes as a champion.
