CST PostNL Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team
Inspiring people to discover and enjoy the fun and freedom of riding a mountain bike is the driving philosophy of this team. “A successful team beats with one heart. The ‘heart’ of our team beats by passion for mountain biking” says Bart.
After a year of limited racing in 2020 as a result of the global pandemic, CST PostNL Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team is looking forward to competing in the Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB series, EU and World Championships and the UCI E-MTB series in 2021.
However, in 2021, it’s the Olympic flame that burns bright in the team. Since Bart Brentjens became World’s First Olympic Champion Mountainbike at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, the team has had a consistent focus on the Olympic Games.
With clear goals and ambitions, CST PostNl Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team chose to work with only quality sponsors and suppliers – such as Cadence Nutrition. Cadence Nutrition products cater for both rapid and sustained energy delivery, hydration and overall improved recovery of the highest standard for training, racing and recovery.

Yana Belomoina - Ukrain
Anne Tauber - Netherlands
Mariske Strauss - South Africa
Sebastian Fini Carstensen - Denmark
Martins Blums - Latvia
