Q&A with Mathijs Paasschens
What is the best gift you ever received?
An avocado hugger because it keeps the avocado fresh and green.
What is your favourite board game?
Settlers of Catan.
Who do you admire and why?
Maarten van der Weijden because he has a real fighting spirit. His comeback after being diagnosed with leukemia is really inspiring. In 2008, he became Olympian champion on the 10 kilometres of swimming in open water.
Imagine you could trade places with a celebrity for one day, who would you pick?
Victor Campenaerts, so that I could enjoy training on rollers.
What is, besides cycling, your favourite hobby?
Meeting with friends and driving my Vespa.
