Q&A with Mieke Docx
Which foreign language would you like to speak fluently and why?
Spanish, it's a language I know very little but that I need a lot during races and training camps. French and English both go well, so I'd rather choose a fourth new language.
Imagine you could trade places with a celebrity for one day, which one would it be and why?
Mathieu van der Poel or Wout van Aert. I keep wondering how much they can suffer during races. But it also must feel great to know you're an allrounder and are one of the best cyclists in the world. At last, I never understand how men can be so relaxed on trainingrides while I'm already suffering while following someone's wheel. So I definitely want to know how that feels too.
What is the best gift you ever received?
That's a very difficult question. I'm not a materialistic person, so I can enjoy nice views and sceneries more, same goes for nice company and good food. A recent gift is something I adopted, my French Bulldog Mel, I wouldn't wanna miss her for all the money in the world.
If you could be an animal for one day, which would you pick?
Like most people I'd say a bird. But I'd choose a bird of prey so I'd make it through the end of the day.
In what period of history would you like to have lived?
I'm quite happy to have grown up in the 90's. There weren't really any videogames or smartphones. We had a computer which took half an hour to start up. During that period, playing outside and being creative was still very normal, I kinda miss those times.
