“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 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, 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 played an integral role in putting Alberto Bettiol on the top step of the podium.
While Sebastian’s biggest passion and strength lies in the early season one-day races, 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.
Sebastian spends his winters racing in the sand in a distinctly Dutch style of off-season training known as beach racing.
