Per Van Vlerken
Per is one of the most dedicated and committed athletes I have ever coached. He is HUNGRY to be the best that he can be and is definitely going to be making waves in the men’s pro fields at every race this year. FIRED UP to see him SHINE! – Siri Lindley

Favorite Tough Training Session
I love hill intervals on the bike, you can always push a little harder.
What Inspires Per
To reach my limit and to know that I haven’t reached my limit yet.
I don’t really have on hero. Everybody is a hero for me who is working hard and fair to fulfil their dream.
What is your favorite race?
My favourite long distance race is definitely CHALLENGE ROTH. Best short distance race is LEIPZIGER TRIATHLON, my home town race.
