I am riding a custom stalen Jaegher Ascender, with mechanical Campagnolo Record, SWS Wheels RCA22 & RCA27 Elite Aero, Continental GP4000S tires and Super Nova lighting, usually also an appidura saddlebag … but he’s now traveling in the car behind me ;).
Kristof Allegaert from Belgium may not be known like Alberto Contador but he uses the same clothing from Sportful as El Pistolero.
He participates in the Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme from Moscow to Vladivostok and is currently in the lead.
His head is well protected with Lazer Helmets from Belgium.
Possibly the toughest cyclist on earth! #redbulltranssiberianextreme
What an adventure, the transsiberian extreme is an opportunity that is amazing, is’t already a joy to be here, and we didn’t ride our bike yet! The organization here is outstanding, an amazing team is taking care of us. Maybe that’s why i don’t feel nervous at all (for the moment).
THE OFFICIAL BIG THANK YOU
I know, i have to ride every km of the trip, but this would not be possible without the help of some friends, thank you guys for all the support.
