Kusztor enjoys the ‘pure’ race on stage 3 ITT in Belgium

16 June 2023

Peter Kusztor may be the oldest rider competing at the Baloise Belgium Tour but he’s still carrying speed in the time trials for Team Novo Nordisk as the 38-year-old former Hungarian national TT champion put the hammer down on the third stage and recorded the team’s best time.

Sports Director Gennady Mikhaylov:

“We didn’t come into today’s TT with any expectations, for the guys it was just about doing the best they could. Peter didn’t surprise me at all we know how strong he is and we know he’s an experienced chronoman, so well done to him and we look ahead to tomorrow now.”

Peter Kusztor:

“I always like the TT, it’s a pure race. Only against yourself, the conditions and of course the clock. So I just tried to do the best I could and push the maximum.”

“I felt pretty good, I’m not a young man anymore and in a stage race like this even if I’m going to the limit in a TT, I’m still thinking about the next day so in that sense today’s effort over 15km was manageable.”
