Rider Bio:

Jolien D’hoore was born on the 14 December, 1990 in Gent, Belgium. D’hoore picked up cycling at the age of twelve after having competed in athletics since she was six. One of the guys in her athletics club had successfully switched to cycling, so, that seemed like a good reason for Jolien to follow the same path. Following Jolien’s introduction to cycling, everything went fast for the youngster. Jolien went to a few cycling races as a spectator, applied for a racing licence and immediately started competing in races. That was the start of an already beautiful career for D’hoore.

Jolien D’hoore has always been a talented athlete. On the track she collected several Elite national titles while she was still a junior back in 2008. Later that year she became the Junior Road World Champion in South Africa and also won a bronze medal in the team pursuit at the European Championships, together with Evelyn Arys and Jessie Daams. In 2009, at the age of 18, D’hoore turned pro with the Topsport Vlaanderen-Ridley team and raced for them for the next four years before switching to Lotto-Belisol Ladies team in 2013.

In 2012 D’hoore (who has a Bachelor degree in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences) was fifth place in the Omnium at the Olympic Games in London, and won her first Belgium national road title. From that point D’hoore continued to develop herself into a very accomplished all-round athlete. In 2014 Jolien won five major UCI races including the National Championship, two stages in the BeNe Ladies Tour, a stage in the Boels Rental Ladies Tour and the Diamond Tour. In addition, Jolien won the Omnium at the Guadelajara World Cup in Mexico and, finished second in the Omnium at both the European Track Championships in Guadeloupe and the London World Cup.

In 2015 the double Belgian road champion Jolien D’hoore left the Lotto Belisol Ladies team. After two years with Belgium’s top women’s team, D’hoore joined the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling team as first ever Belgian. Well known for this the team will support the 25-year-old from Gent, East Flanders, to focus primarily on her track ambitions, as well as develop her on the road.

In 2015 D’hoore was the most winning athlete with 13 UCI wins including two World Cups (Drenthe and Sweden) and another Belgian road title her third in her career. Jolien’s abilities and strengths make her an indispensable member of the team. Although she will focus herself more on the track in 2016 in order to chase a medal at the Olympics in Rio, the Belgian still has ambitions on the road next year with the Tour of Flanders and the Worlds in Qatar high on her list.
