Laurent Dene

Laurent Dene – “Living and working in Geneva – between the Alps and the Jura mountains – an incredible biking playground.

Riding Audax mountain brevets since seven years and Superrandonnées since five.This year I really felt the need to test myself on a bigger distance … it became the SBA !

Oh yeah, I’m a recumbent rider 😉

Laurent – the only recumbent rider in this edition of SwissBikeAdventure – will start ITT tomorrow at 6pm!

That is going to be an amazing adventure and a great ride on the bike.

Enjoy the route Laurent, good luck!

Pavel Klinov

Pavel Klinov – software engineer, originally from Russia, living around Heidelberg, Germany.

“I used to enjoy Audax before COVID and that was my introduction to long distance cycling, in its most social form. It was also a chance for a pretty slow guy to achieve something which look extraordinary to non-cyclists! I am gradually moving from Audax to ultra racing though because, as slow as I am, I love seeing my point on a map and feeling like I’m chasing someone ahead of me. Even when we’re riding for the 2nd to last place, still competitive!”

Pavel finished a bunch of brevets, a Super 600 in Munich in 2020, Paris-Brest-Paris 2019, and the Transpyrenees 2020.

See you in Andermatt Pavel!
