We both really love triathlon and cycling in particular. We both have raced many middle distance (1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run) races, countless olympic and sprints and one long distance – Ironman Zurich (3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run). In 2020 Josien started training with Yvonne van Vlerken and hopefully we will be able to race again at Challenge Roth in 2021.
Our love for triathlon brought us together! We met in July 2018 at the finish line of a middle distance triathlon in Prague (1.9km swim, 90km bike ride and 21.1km run). We talked for a while and decided to meet up that evening for a few drinks in the city. While drinking a beer we discussed our life stories and decided that it would be a great idea to meet up sometime for a ride in Heidelberg or Switzerland. This already happened a couple days later and from there all moved fast! Only 2 months after we met we went on our first holiday together to Brazil, Franklin’s home country.
