BELGIAN ULTRA-ENDURANCE CYCLING LEGEND, KRISTOF ALLEGAERT HAS JOINED THE CURVE SQUAD.

June 15, 2018

| Today Curve Cycling is excited to announce that Kristof Allegaert has joined the Curve squad. |

If you’re familiar with ultra-endurance cycling, Kristof needs no introduction. Kristof has won the world’s premier sealed-road bikepacking race, The Transcontinental, three times. He won the 2015 edition of the 9,200km Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme race. He was leading the inaugural Indian Pacific Wheel Race in 2017 after a brutal 5,000 km showdown with Mike Hall, when the race was cancelled after Mike Hall was tragically killed by a motorist. Kristof’s performances have astounded dot-watchers as much as his opponents. 

While the mild-mannered Belgian might play down his achievements, he just doesn’t know how to lose unsupported ultra-endurance events. His style is characterised by a relentless drive to move forward, with an impressive moving average speed coupled with very little rest. He needs a bike he can trust and Curve bikes have been proven in the battlefield of unsupported ultra-endurance racing. From the deserts of Australia to the mountains of the Tour Divide, Curve bikes are designed to perform in the toughest events on the planet. The fit for Kristof is perfect. “I’m excited to ride Curve because they make the bikes I like to ride. It’s back to basics with solid bikes that you can trust under all conditions”, Kristof said.

While Kristof isn’t focussed on racing right now he has a full calendar of exciting adventures planned, with a possible record attempt on the horizon. “There’s a tough, well contested record that I am interested to challenge. The record was achieved with support but I think I might attempt it unsupported. I still have some more research to do first”, Kristof said. We can’t say much more right now, but we are super excited to see what Kristof attacks next. 

So with all this great news we're also very excited to announce Kristof will be riding with us here at G!RO on the 1st July! On the 29th, 30th and 1st, we are having a Transcontinental Road Race extravaganza and will be welcoming Apidura & Matt Falconer on the Friday with Beers & BBQ, A Curve Demo day on the Saturday and a ride out with Kristof on the Sunday! It's going to be a be a big one and you'd be crazy to miss it! More details to follow soon...

It’s always been about the ride.

From a young age, cycling has been part of my life. My grandad cycled the track at Herne Hill during the ’40s, which is also where I saw Bradley Wiggins race for the first time.
