Search for the Next Top Mechanic
The program will be kicked off with an audition to generate awareness for the job of mechanic and to attract new talent to the world of cycling. As of April 17th, anyone can apply for the Auditions of The Next Top Mechanic.
After a first screening round based on experience and resumé, four applicants will be invited to the Team Jumbo-Visma HQ in the Netherlands for the definitive selection, featuring a combination of spectacular challenges. Cycling fans will have the opportunity to follow this unique talent show online via three video episodes. This Audition will end with the winner signing a one-year contract with Team Jumbo-Visma. This person will get to put their proven skills to work, preparing bicycles, and supporting the likes of Primož Roglič, Wout van Aert, Marianne Vos, Jonas Vingegaard, Tom Dumoulin, Sepp Kuss, Rohan Dennis, and many more riders.
