Mie Bekker Lacota finds motivation

Dane Mie Bekker Lacota has her motivation for cycling back as starts racing again. Following her dream debut with team Flexpoint by winning The Omloop Het Volk, the former Junior World Champion decided to take a break from cycling last May.

"I simply lost all the motivation and didn't see why I was doing it all... I had no goal. Like that there was for me no sense in continuing my career. That's why I took some time to do things I couldn't do as I pro-cyclist. I even got a job delivering mail, with this is I kept my condition quite OK."
