Yuli also joined AG Insurance-Soudal Quick-Step in 2022 as one of the youngest riders. Cycling has played a role in her life since a young age. Her cousin Niki Terpstra was and is a great example. Dwars door Vlaanderen, a race he won several times, and Binche-Chimay-Binche are her favorite races.
“My two cousins Niki and his brother Mike told me to go cycling at the club DTS Zaandam and I did. I've been riding on the track since I was ten and even won a medal at the World Championships!”
Yuli always smiles and is a cheerful ‘troublemaker’. Her words, not ours, although we wholeheartedly endorse this characterization, in all good sense of the word trouble. She is the princess of selfies and has already modeled for makeup brand Mac Cosmetics.
“I hope we can really show ourselves as a team this year and I hope to be able to ride top ten myself. I'm really proud to be part of the Wolfpack. My dream is to ride the World Tour one day and then take many victories as a team, and maybe even win myself!”
When Yuli is not riding, you will find her at the table with her family. She is proud of her Indonesian roots. She can often be found with friends or with her boyfriend Noah who is also a cyclist. And while being social everything is accurately captured on Instagram. You are not the princess of the selfie for nothing.
