17 July 2023
Three days of racing in Hungary at the Gemenc GP ended with former national champion Peter Kusztor taking tenth place for Team Novo Nordisk Development on the second road stage and winning the best Hungarian rider jersey.
“Today’s stage looked harder since there was an actual climb, and it was the last opportunity for other teams to take over the race,” said Daniel Holt, the Development Team General Manager. “I told the guys to look for a chance to break away and then prepare for the likely bunch sprint.”
“All of them rode pretty well today. Peter did great to make the final selection of 13 riders over the top of the last climb and then fought hard to almost get on the podium.”
“It was great to have him here with the guys. He showed them what a true professional does at the races. They all learned so much from him. In the end, he also won the Best Hungarian rider jersey!”
