NEW CHAIRMAN KIREMKO NACHT VAN WOERDEN

20 October 2020

Today, on the day the 20th Kiremko Nacht van Woerden would take place, Arjan van der Horst hands over the gavel to Marien Groenendijk after nineteen years, who will happily take on the position. “I think this is a really nice event,” Marien explains.

Arjan has thought carefully about a suitable moment, but that is almost not there. “Do you do this during the 20-year presidency, at the 50th anniversary of our organisation committee or at Woerden 650 years of city rights in 2022? ” All sorts of reasons came together for him to hand over the gavel now. “Firstly, because the Night was canceled this year due to Corona and as a result all kinds of new laws and regulations are coming to our sport. There is also discussion about the structure of cyclocross and the compensation to the
riders. ” Just like the question of how to deal with the public and with sponsors, these are issues that require a long breath. “I thought it wise to have a new chairman getting to work. ”

Connection is important
Marien Groenendijk is the owner of Groenendijk Bedrijfskleding, but stepped back as a director since 1 January this year. “That means that I have more time for other things. Because I really enjoy cycling and specifically cyclocross, I like to work on all these new issues. ” Arjan is happy with Marien as successor. “He also is a cyclist himself, comes from the business and therefore knows very well what motivates sponsors and the most important thing is his bond with Woerden, he was born and raised there. ”

Strong team
The new chairman will not immediately change all kinds of things. “I get on a moving train with a strong team and you shouldn't want to change what goes well. On later term I will add some nuances, but we'll do that together as a team. " By the way, he already knows most of the members of the board. “I cycle regularly with two of them, so that's already talking very easy." What he certainly will not change is the koppelcross. “The fact that children can cycle together with the pros is such a nice element that Arjan came up with at the time, that
stays in it. ” “I had to fight hard for it at the KNWU,” said Arjan. "The union was not too keen on something new." It marks his progressive presidency, that he puts in the hands of his successor with a good feeling.

Marien hopes that we will be able to organise another Kìremko Nacht van Woerden next year. “It is a unique race in the center of Woerden with a large audience and a great atmosphere. The riders are always looking forward to it too. ”
