JAAKKO SILLANKORVA

I am a 19-year-old cyclist from Tuusula. My main sport is road cycling, but here I can also be found competing for victories in off-road and cyclocross.

 

I'm a very versatile cyclist and strengths of the cyclists is repeated severe impacts. This year I drove the first year in the under 23 series and the men in Elite. I think I've developed a good pace during the last two years and I want to continue the development. For next year, I chose Akilles as the team because I feel the team is potential and I believe I will get good conditions for career advancement from the team.

 

I've been shooting sport in many forms at all times, but the main type of a targeted road cycling have been selected properly only in 2017, when I started to work in front of the success with the first official coach. Before that, there was more mountain biking in the patterns and the second sport was basketball all the way to upper secondary school. Personally, I feel like a very purposeful person and I haven’t had a habit of giving up even if everything doesn’t turn out for the best.

 

In addition to sport I have been to high school, where I graduated with good grades and also bow a university place to study the same road Tampere University of Technology, where studies are waiting for the future. I am currently performing military service at the Defense Forces Sports School, which will bring its own challenge to the coming season.

 

For the coming season, I expect strong performances in national competitions from myself and my new team, as well as good achievements from abroad.
