Mischa Bredewold

Biography

Cycling it is. As a 7-year-old, Mischa found her sport. She never wanted anything else anymore. Mischa is studying Biomedical Science at the University of Utrecht.

As a coffee-lover, she likes to stop during her training ride, for a good caffeine shot with apple pie. She would love to travel the world as a professional cyclist. Her big portion of dedication and perseverance will certainly help towards these goals. After being one of the top talents as a junior, the last 2 years, Mischa fought her way back into the peloton after a year of revalidation from severe injuries she had suffered from due to a car accident. Mischa showed great mental strength, and last year she proved herself in a comeback at the end of the season. Already this year, she showed her potential scoring a 5th place in her first race, only to break her collarbone a few days later in the UCI race GP Samyn, when trying to close a gap to the front group which eventually would ride for the win.

The Amstel Gold Race and the Giro Rosa are Mischa’s favorite races, so when the roads rise, Mischa is in her zone, and ready for more!
