Cyclinglab is a team of movement scientists, physiotherapists, a sports doctor and sports dietician. With an indoor training center, training guidance and services such as exercise tests and bikefittings, Cyclinglab translates the scientific knowledge of the pros to the cyclist of each level. With this expertise they train and test many professional cyclists, but every year they also prepare many recreational cyclists for goals such as Alpe d’Huzes, the Marmotte, Amstel Gold Race or the Dolomites Marathon.

Jim van den Berg (CyclingLab Owner):
" We are really excited to make the jump to the WorldTour. After having worked with several top riders individually, now we have to chance to oversee the evolution of a whole WorldTour squad. At Cyclinglab our mission is to train cyclists and we believe that behind real performance there’s always a team. Our team of trainers will make sure that the Intermarché Wanty Gobert's riders have the best possible assistance to improve their performance."

Frederik Veuchelen (Head Coach):
" I am delighted to work with the coaches of CyclingLab, with whom we organize the training camps and the annual training plans, through careful analysis of the numbers produced by the riders and helping defining parcours. Thanks to a smooth communication and great understanding between us, we build a coherent strategy both in the short and the long term for the riders, individually as well as collectively. With CyclingLab's expertise in training, coaching and support, our riders are in good hands!"
