About Tanja:  The 2021 season is going to be my 4th season as a pro. I came into pro cycling through winning the Zwift Academy 2017. For over 15 years I used to be a triathlete and I raced fixed gear for one. Next to triathlon I first finished nursing school in 2011 and afterwards graduated med school in 2017 as a doctor. In my offseason I still love to go swimming and I can call myself more than lucky that I made my hobby my job.
