"I grew up cycling from an early age until I hung up my bike in 2007 because the motivation was gone. My vision was still good at the time, but from 2012 I had to let go of more and more things because of my vision impairment. In 2014 my old passion was revived by getting on the tandem."

Timo Fransen, NED, from 2014 (teamvit.nl, 03 Mar 2020)

He and his tandem pilot Timo Fransen are committed to finding new ways to improve their performance through the equipment they use. "Speed is a result of many factors - training, materials, position, and aerodynamics. Good equipment is 'free' profit. You can still train hard, but if you do not do everything with your equipment, you have trained more or less for nothing and all profit will be lost. A tandem does not necessarily go twice as fast, in terms of aerodynamics there is some loss in 'drag'. You have the disadvantage of the wind and you are heavier. Timo and I are pioneers when it comes to development. We test special helmets, tyres and shoes. We are constantly optimising where we can." (dhlexpress.nl, 12 Sep 2019)
