Meet the team; Q&A Eline

Watersley R+D Team Eline

Meet Eline van Rooijen

18 years old, 1st year U23 rider from Woerden, Utrecht.

The always happy and enthusiastic Eline was born in the province of Limburg and moved to Woerden near Utrecht when she was 8 years old, where she started cycling at that age.

Eline describes herself as always being happy and full of energy. Combining her work, study, and of course cycling, we couldn’t agree more. When most cyclists are ready for some rest when the road season ends, Eline switches to her track bike to race in circles at a velodrome, where she is a multiple Dutch Champion in different disciplines already.

Eline is someone who says what she thinks, and honesty is important to her. She is a typical ‘racer’, but when she isn’t on her bike or at work, she likes to hang out with her friends. One of her dreams is to go to New York with them soon.
