We are team Energents! We are an energetic team made out of 3 gentlemen from Groningen, The Netherlands. These gentlemen are called: Calvin Bootsman, Kilian Lafleur, and Koen van Dijk. We are part of the biggest European student association and we love to travel. With this student association we have done multiple hitchhiking competitions. Koen has won 2 out of 7 races he competed in, while Calvin has won 3 out of 4, and he has hitchhiked over 6500km in 2017! During those competitions we have slept everywhere, from beaches to forest, to beds our rides offered us! You can most certainly say that we are experienced hitchhikers. Kilian on the other hand has other important qualities, like making sure the video looks great and has great promotion skills. In the past half year, he has also been on three different continents.
The three of us are all fit, and ready for a competition. The challenge is amazing and we would certainly be a good team for this. We have a lot of on road experience in Europe. We are strong and courageous enough for all the challenges you will throw at us. So Red Bull, we can make it!
Hello everyone! My name is Calvin Bootsman. I'm 21 years old and study electrical engineering in Groningen (The Netherlands). I absolutely love to hitchhike and do it every now and then. In 2017 alone I have hitchhiked around 6500km! With the student association that I'm part of I won 3 out of the 4 hitchhiking competitions I participated in. Which makes me statistically better than Koen! My favourite trip was the Balkan trip. We hitchhiked for two weeks around the Balkans and got to enjoy the people's hospitality.
If I'm not hitchhiking I'm either working on software projects, or practicing the sport Martial Arts Tricking. This is a sport where you combine martial arts with gymnastics and capoeira. It's a super high energy level sport and is amazing. You will probably see me do some flips in the upcoming video's!
I'm Kilian, 23 years old from The Netherlands.
I'm studying Media and Entertainment Management at NHL Stenden, where I'm also doing my internship at the moment.

Allemaal leuk en aardig, maar ik ga alleen voor de winst.
