The Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge and ISWC European Championships draws ever closer, with it, a heated fleet of top names who will come together on the shores of Fuerteventura to see who can take the title of the first ever Dunkerbeck GPS Speed Challenge. We’ve been catching up with some of the possible contenders for the top spot, last week was the turn of Anders Bringdal, this week we speak to Jurjen van der Noord.
