2013 World Champion, three-time Ironman France and two-time Abu Dhabi Triathlon champion, Frederik Van Lierde has been a professional triathlete since 2003.

BELGIAN ROOTS

Frederik Van Lierde holds a degree in physical education, and is a member of Leie Triatlon Team Latem, one of Belgium’s best triathlon teams. The 32-year-old Belgian's favorite training ground is at Font Romeu, an increasingly popular spot in the French Pyrenees close to Spain.

PERSONAL VALUES

Following his World Championship victory in 2013, in 2014 Frederik placed 2nd at Ironman Frankfurt and first at ExtremeMan Düren and in his ‘home’ competition, the Deinze half-Ironman. For the 2014 and 2015 seasons Frederik has been riding a custom-painted Cervélo P5, featuring a reminder of what he values most: the names of his family are found along the inside of the fork and seat-tube cutout. The bike also reflects Frederik’s appreciation for technology: his training, nutrition and racing are all based on research and technological advances. The pixelated design reflects this passion.

YOUNG SOLDIERS

Van Lierde credits his ability to focus on his sport full-time to his sponsorship by the Belgian Army. The Belgian army recruits young athletes from a variety of sports, and after two months of basic training, allows these elite athlete to focus full-time on their sport while being paid as a soldier.
