Van Anrooij dreams of yellow after the youth jersey: ‘Want to develop myself as a classification rider’

Shirin van Anrooij goes with the after the Tour de France Femmes white youth jersey home and that is very satisfying. The 20-year-old Trek-Segafredo rider finished fourteenth in the overall standings, but she hopes to do better in the coming years.

‘I think the Tour was a success, yes. It was super tough, but I’m definitely satisfied. I suffered a lot and the first six days were very chaotic. That’s why I was looking forward to the closing weekend, because we finally started climbing. That was great fun, although today (Sunday, ed.) I really suffered a lot’, she says at the NOS.

Van Anrooij learned a lot from Van Vleuten

Her next goal? ‘I do dream of eventually being able to go for the yellow jersey’, she says somewhat despairingly. ‘Yes I think so. I really want to develop myself further as a classification rider. I notice that the climbing is going very well, but that I still have a lot to learn and get stronger. I’m only twenty, so I still have a few years to go.’

In that respect she had a perfect teacher in Annemiek van Vleuten at an altitude training course in Andorra, with whom she trained together prior to the Tour. ‘I have noticed that she can suffer a lot in training, and that I don’t have a hard time in training. I was impressed by that. She does it with passion and pleasure and enjoys every training. I also really like long cycling and climbing, so I hope I can grow further in that area.’
