The Hawk! Born in Gouda in the Netherlands, in 1994, Havik turned professional on the road in 2012, riding for multiple teams including Rabobank’s development squad, Team Katusha Alpecin and BEAT Cycling, before switching focus to gravel racing. As a privateer (unattached rider) he took multiple UCI gravel podiums and a UCI gravel win in 2022, Piotr capped it off with a 12th place at the inaugural gravel world championships. Signing for Classified Factory Team in 2023, The Hawk has his sights on the biggest gravel races of the season, again culminating at the European and World Gravel Championships.

Competing at a handful of Spring Classics in 2023, including Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and GP le Samyn, Victor demonstrates what Classified can do on the world stage.
