Every summer, Hugo watched the Tour de France in amazement with his younger brother Pierrik. Never would he have imagined to one day race in one of these European teams. Today, in addition to being part of a World Tour team, he is this close to reaching his dream of going to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and why not win a stage at the Tour de France in honor of his greatest supporter: his brother Pierrik!
It was natural for Hugo to join the Israel Premier Tech team given the presence of Canadians in this formation. In addition, the team is constantly evolving towards the top of the World-Tour rankings. This change of team brings him additional motivation. The years have taught him that a good entourage is the most important aspect within a team.
The freedom and the tranquility that Hugo finds when riding in nature are elements that always make his passion for cycling evolve. Competition-wise, it provides him with a rush of adrenaline that pushes him to constantly work harder to achieve his dreams. The passion and the desire of always wanting to push his limits make him a motivated and passionate athlete.
