In track cycling she won her first national titles, becoming Dutch champion in the 500m time trial and sprint. She also won a silver medal in the points race. At the world championships in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania, USA, she was seventh in the 500m time trial and eighth in the sprint and individual pursuit.

She won a bronze medal at the 2003 World Track Championships in Stuttgart. In the same year she won the Dutch points, scratch and individual pursuit championships for the first time. In May 2004 she won her first World Cup meeting in Sydney, where she won the scratch before finishing 10th at the world championships in Melbourne a week later.

In June on the road she won the Omloop Middag-Humsterland, Profronde van Stiphout and a race in Dalen. These brought her into the national team for the world road championship for the first time, finishing 84th in Madrid. She won her second World Cup track event in Manchester where she won the scratch again before defending her three national Dutch titles.

2006 started well when in January she won Egmond-Pier-Egmond. In March she won the road race in Oud Vossemeer. She finished in the top 10 in both the road race and the time trial championship (7th and 9th). Between 15 July and 1 August she won four road races; (Ochten), Barendrecht, Alblasserdam and Surhuisterveen). Dutch national coach Egon van Kessel selected her for the World championship again following these results.
