Five Unknown Facts: Yves Lampaert
In January, we kicked-off a season-long series focused on unknown things about our riders. Very likely, everybody is aware how the Etixx – Quick-Step riders came into the sport or what are their biggest results to date, but few or none know what movies and music they enjoy, or where they like to spend their holidays. Here's your chance to find out all these.
Favourite movies: I'm very much into films that mix history with fiction without stretching it too much and losing the plot. "Monuments Men" and "The Da Vinci Code" are two of these movies, both telling an important and fascinating story which leaves you with a desire to know more about it.
Favourite TV series: Since the first episode I've seen of the "The Big Bang Theory", I found it to be a very funny show, which I had hoped to go on for years, and fortunately it did. The way it's packed – great characters, witty jokes and cultural references – got me hooked and brought countless laughs ever since.
Favourite video games: FIFA, but just from time to time. I don't even start a domestic or European season, I just like to play a few matches to take my mind off things.
Favourite food: I never say no to mashed potatoes with meatballs made by my mother. Delicious!
Favourite holiday: Spectacular volcanoes, beautiful fjords and the Aurora Borealis, all these make of the Nordic countries my ideal destination for some off time. Once you see that part of the world, there's no way you won't fall in love with it.
