Cycling

As a freelance photographer, I had the opportunity to photograph the world-class time-trial cyclist from Belgium, Victor Campenaerts who made Namibia his home temporarily to prepare for his onslaught on the 1-hour record in April 2019. In 2017 and 2018 he won the European time-trial championships and the National time-trial championships in 2016 and 2018.

He came to Namibia to concentrate fully on his intense training schedule and to make use of the ideal summer conditions to prepare for the season ahead in Europe. He trains mostly on his own and keeps to a very vigorous professional approach to keep up his fitness and to build his muscles every day while in Namibia for two months.
