Queen Stage in Belgium Tour brings out another strong ride from Kusztor

17 June 2023

Former Hungarian champion Peter Kusztor is enjoying a run of form at the Baloise Belgium Tour finishing within the top 40 riders on todays Queen Stage and giving Team Novo Nordisk and the diabetes community something to smile about.

Sports Director Gennady Mikhaylov:

“Peter yet again was our best rider today, with 3,000m climbing coming over 170km and in hot conditions we knew it wasn’t going to be a day for Andrea or Matyas, so Peter was free to ride his own race and he did very well.”

“His age doesn’t come into it for me, he’s a great example to the young guys with his professionalism and he’s in good shape. He’s also an inspiration for the whole diabetes community and let’s not forget, that’s why we’re here.”

Peter Kusztor:

“Of course it was a hard day today, Queen stages are never easy and I tried to stay as far up the field as possible for as long as I could, but on the final lap the front of the race split apart and even more so on the climb up to the finish.”

“We’re here to do our best and share our message with everyone about what is possible with diabetes, but we also want results and strive to achieve our goals so let’s go all in tomorrow and try to get another top ten.”
