Eenkhoorn seemed quite relaxed while talking about his new team:

This is a team with a beautiful history and future.I have had a lot of talks with everyone at the team. At this team I can chase my own ambitions and will receive more freedom during races. I have a very good feeling about this move

Champion of the Dutch road race has been enjoying victories for quite some time. In 2021, he won the Heylen Vastgoed Heistse Pijl, in 2020 and 2018 he took two stage wins at ettimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartal while in 2018 he also won a stage at the Colorado Classic. Yet, he still feels that he was not presented with as many opportunities as he deserved at Jumbo-Visma. He feels overlooked, as he said:

I have been a pro for 5 years now and have learned a lot at my current team. But I have a need for more freedom in races. Now is the time where I can still make the decision to change and follow my own ambitions

The 25-year-old brings with him some very big ambitions to his new team. He confirmed his goals saying:

My biggest motivation is to win races. I want to get the maximum out of my career.

John Lelangue, Ceo at Lotto Soudal also looked very keen to welcome the new member on board:

He is a rider who has already proven that he can win races. With a bit more freedom and an altered racing program, we think he can prove that more often

He further added:

He is a very versatile rider: he can play his role in almost any Classic and can go far in breakaways in Grand Tours. We are looking very much forward to our collaboration with him.
