CareerEdit

Amateur careerEdit

Born in Delft, van Winden joined the Rabobank Continental Team in 2007 at the age of 19, where he enjoyed success at the Under-23 level in his three seasons with the team, taking several wins including the national Under-23 time trial title and a stage of the Tour de l'Avenir, as well as a third-placed finish in the U23 Liège–Bastogne–Liège.

Professional careerEdit

He subsequently turned professional with Rabobank in 2010. In November 2012 he underwent surgery to correct a kink that had developed in an internal iliac artery in his right leg, however he contracted an infection from the surgery which resulted in months of further treatment, leaving him unable to return to competition until May 2013.[3]

In November 2014 van Winden announced that he would join Synergy Baku for the 2015 season, with a focus on riding as part of the team's sprint train.[4] However, in May 2015 it was announced that he would rejoin his old team, then known as LottoNL–Jumbo, after four months with Synergy Baku.[5] In October 2016 he announced that he would join the Israel Cycling Academy for the 2017 season.[6]
