My name is Fem van Empel, born on 3 September 2002 in 's Hertogenbosch. I was a baby who wanted to discover and experience everything. At the age of 3 I already cycled without training wheels. When I was 6 years old, I played soccer in a boy's team of RKSV Sint-Michielsgestel. I didn't care where I stood as long as I could run. In addition to football, I also did cycling / cyclocross. My first road race was on July 7, 2010 in Mierlo-Hout. Here I achieved a nice 13th place. At the age of 15 I was asked to play for RKSV Nuenen. I played here one and a half season in the 1st. On November 10, 2019, I decided to quit football and focus entirely on cycling. In my last football match I scored 2 goals. In the coming years I will focus on my cyclocross and mountainbike career!
