Joining Van D'am Racing in 2017, de Vroet holds immense experience at such a young age. Originally from Perth, de Vroet relocated to to Melbourne to study Journalism at Monash University whilst continuing to race the National Road Series.

de Vroet specialises on the flat hard races which has seen him gain success over in Europe the previous two years. He hopes to step up another level in 2018 and become competitive in the National Road Series as well as overseas.

"I'm extremely happy to be staying with Van D'am Racing for 2018. I had a lot of fun in 2017 and received invaluable support from director Lachlan Ambrose with my university studies. Can't wait to get 2018 started with the boys."
