Dolce Vita Bike Festival RivaGepubliceerd op: 4 mei 2014
Feenstra-boys concurred the steep mountains at Bikefestival Riva del Garda.
Because our riders competed in Houfalize (Belgium) and Haiming (Austria) and we thought that our colours should be present at one of Europe’s biggest bike festivals we asked the two Elite-road cyclists Maurits Buist and Henk Bos to represent us in Italy. Both riders completed the 90-km Ronda Extreme, with over 4.000 altitude meters.
Henk Bos suffered some mechanical problems during the race but thanks to support from our colleagues from Team Specialized and our Communication Manager Andries Hoekstra, who gave him is rear wheel, Bos completed the race. Hoekstra completed the last 10 km descend to the finish, including the rock garden, on a flat tyre (from Bos). Bos and Buist came in together. ,,This was a magnificent experience, next year I’ll be back’’, spoke Buist.
Our Team Manager Maarten Kemperman also completed the race and complimented the organisation. ,,Everything was perfectly organized. This event is one big promotion for our sport and it’s a nice environment to meet up with ours sponsors like Prologo, FSA, Kenda, Suntour, Adidas eyewear and Felt.’’
