Jasper Philipsen: “In the near future, the focus will mainly be on the sprint”

Jasper Philipsen will make his debut for his new team Alpecin-Fenix on Sunday in the UAE Tour. In a video, the 22-year-old rider, who won a stage in the Vuelta a España last season and dreams of one day becoming world champion, discusses the next step in his career.
Philipsen left UAE Emirates this winter for a new adventure at Alpecin-Fenix, where he will become the teammate of Mathieu van der Poel, among others. “Every year I try to take steps. They may not always be the biggest steps, but for me it is better for the future to take small steps. Hopefully I can keep improving. It is very important not to want too much and not to skip steps. We try to make the right choices in this. In the near future I want to try to concentrate mainly on the sprints. ”
Even though the Belgian rider now has a stage victory in the Vuelta to his name, he does not experience pressure from the outside world. “I mainly put pressure on myself. I want to achieve the goals that I have in mind and I want to achieve them as quickly as possible. That sometimes causes some stress, but I don’t feel any pressure from the outside world or from Belgium. I just try to stay calm and we’ll see how it goes. I think the team has developed well in recent years. It is a new step in my career. I look forward to achieving great things with the team.
I hope you are in health and well.
