Meet the team; Q&A Josephine
Meet Josephine Peloquin
19 years old, 2nd year U23 rider from Montreal, Canada, but living at the Watersley Topsport and Talentpark during the season.
Straight from Montreal, Canada, ‘Josie’ lives and studies from Watersley in 2020. She follows online classes for her Business administration study during the season. Josephine was an alpine skier and swimmer in the past, but now Josie prefers the hilly terrain as a cyclist. At the start of this season, she didn’t quite know what to expect, and it was all about learning to ride in the typical Northern European style of racing. She already showed big potential in her first couple of races, as it looked to come naturally for her.
She would love to travel the world, to combine that with becoming a full professional in cycling, and learn a 4th! language along her way, as French is her modern language.
Favorite snack: tortilla chips with salsa
Favorite song: Superman from Five for Fighting
Dislike: the smell of cheese
Favorite rider: Kate Courtney
