My ambition for 2021 is to extend my progression from the past season to the upcoming season together with my teammates. I want to win races at the highest level.
Charlotte is 21 years old and comes from Kortenhoef, a town about 30 minutes from Amsterdam. Like many Dutch riders she was an avid speedskater as well.
"I have always done cycling in summer from the age of 11. Two years ago I decided to leave speed skating behind and focus on cycling 100%. The thing was that I always had to work very hard to get results in skating and often they weren’t as good as I would have liked. In cycling it’s the other way around. The decision has been a good one because it enables me to focus on my education more during winter time. I read engineering and business administration in Amsterdam."
Charlotte was part of club team Jan van Arckel during the first two years of her career in the elite women category. Many Dutch pro riders hail from this club like Eva Kuijpers, Moniek Tenniglo, Eva Buurman, Claudia Koster and now Charlotte Kool. In her first year with NXTG racing she showed her sprint talent with top tens in Valencia and Omloop van het Hageland.
