Some people are on or off-line, Jelle's life is all about being on track. Since his first time on the BMX track as a 4 years old, his focus was to be the best of the best in the BMX world. To become a champion. Jelle knows like no other that this comes with ups and downs. His last down moved him from the track forever. However, his hunger for the future was his thrive to grow in any situation! That is what makes him so unique.  Be responsible for your own doings. Focus forward, never blame, be grateful and overload it with humor that makes him a real Champion. 


"I can't" is a phrase that is not in Jelle's vocabulary. "How can I?" is the question that brings him further. And that is where he always wanted to go: further, higher, faster. It comes with no surprise that this rapid pace and the unbroken will to win also entails setbacks - time and time again. When you break not only one, but two collarbones at the same time. When the doctor tells you that you will never get your speech back properly. In all these moments Jelle never thought for a second "I can't". He always asked himself "How can I improve this?". 

How he manages to bring his body and his mind under total control again and again, you can read in his book or hire Jelle as a Motivational Speaker.
