Sofie is Antwerp’s most enthusiastic female cyclist (and runner and swimmer). If you doubt about this statement, wake up on the 3rd Saturday morning of each month to meet the ex-pro triathlete at her bicycle store and training centre Amici di Bici. With her professional experience, an unpretentious attitude and the untamed wisdom of a Physical Education teacher, she leads the WMNride Antwerp gang like no one else.
After almost 10 years as a professional triathlete with victories in 4 full IronMan (Florida 2009, Barcelona 2009, Brazil 2011 and Venice 2017), 9 half IronMan and many other ‘small’ triathlon races, Sofie decided to become an iron mother and cycling/triathlon coach at the shop she runs with her husband. She finds satisfaction in motivating other ladies to ride and sharing tips and tricks to make them enjoy the sport even more.
