The Dutchman: Ivar Slik
Ivar Slik, 30 years old, fell in love with cycling as a child. After ten years in professional road cycling, in continental and pro continental teams, he decided to take on a new challenge and start competing in the most exciting gravel races around the world.
Early in his career, Ivar took part in both road and mountain bike races. As a professional he ran in the historic Tour of Flanders and in other races of the World Tour scene, before competing in beach races on a mountain bike, where he was crowned European Champion in 2021, and then ultimately settling into the world of gravel.
In 2022, Ivar triumphed at the Traka in Girona and was also the first non-American to win Unbound 200.
Ivar will race with Sweet Protections's top-of-the-line road bike helmets and performance sunglasses.
