A little hero worship, a little fun on a bike with Eki Ekimov

This was the event everybody was waiting for when Katyusha came to Brussels to launch their clothing range. A chance to ride with Viatcheslav Ekimov… Eki. This is part of the Kring strategy, to bring some of the names in cycling to the city so us average Joes can ride with them for just a few kilometres.

I recently damaged the crank arm on my road bike and could not get it repaired in time for the ride. So I missed it. Not happy.
