Teun van Erp was born on February 21, 1985 in Nistelrode. During his study physiotherapy, he noticed the lack of scientific background and after graduating he applied to the (pre-) master program Human Movement Sciences at the Vrije University in Amsterdam with the focus on sport science. After graduating, he worked for 9 years as an embedded scientist at cycling team Sunweb and predecessors. The team was highly successful with multiple stage victories in Grand Tours, two Classics victories, the overall victory in the Giro d’ Italia and three World Titles. With this more embedded role at cycling Team Sunweb he missed the academic field and therefore started to work in his off-time on his PhD project titled: load, intensity and performance in professional road cycling. At this moment he is working as post-doc at Stellenbosch University to focus on an academic career.
