Sport has been a part of my life since I was a child. When I discovered trail running through my climbing partner at the end of 2015, this sport grew into my biggest passion next to cycling. Covering ultra-distances over inhospitable terrain. Overcoming yourself, nature and the elements after an endless battle. Finishing a challenging trail run or skyrace gives me great satisfaction. Running gives me the faith and mental strength to keep going at all times. Both on a professional, personal and sports level. Etixx is an important link in this chain. You find the necessary willpower, determination and physical capability within yourself. But having the right nutrition before, during and after exercise can sometimes be the key to success.


My disciplines

  • Trail running
  • Running -> Gent Running Team

  • Triathlon


Number of hours’ training per week

10 - 20 hours

 

"life begins at the end
of your comfort zone."

My favourite Etixx products

  • Magnesium 100% Bisglycinate PRO LINE is a supplement that I always have in the house, since I am naturally susceptible to cramps. A nightmare for any athlete. I keep this under control with Magnesium and can always push myself to the extreme.
  • I use Carbo-Gy before and during competitions or training sessions in combination with an isotonic drink (Isotonic) to constantly replenish the necessary carbohydrates.
  • Recovery Shake PRO LINE is vital in my opinion, optimum recovery is essential when you exercise almost every day.


My greatest sporting achievements 

UTMB and Diagonale des Fous are both exceptional 100-mile trail races over an extremely arduous route. Furthermore, in addition to a heap of other ultra-trail races, I am also very happy with the number of mountain peaks I have conquered independently in mountaineering, such as Dom de Mischabel and the better-known Mont Blanc.


My personal records

  • 5km: 00:18:58
  • 10km: 00:39:57
  • 21km: 01:28:48
  • 42km: 03:18:14


My #GiveItYourAll moments in 2021

In the current corona crisis, it isn't easy to set sporting goals. It is a dream of mine to supplement my 2 completed 100-mile trail runs with a third. Namely the Western States Endurance Run. In 2021, I want to qualify for this through the 100km races Val d’Aran by UTMB or Oman by UTMB.
