Adam Hansen, an Australian cyclist, has been racing professionally for over 12 years. He set the record for consecutive grand tour finishes which makes him one of the most dominating/popular domestiques in the World Tour. Being an engineer by trade, his involvement in cycling transcends just riding professionally. He is a forward thinker with the innate ability to assess the needs in the sport of cycling. He was amongst the first athletes to begin experimenting with narrow handlebars and other technical tweaks with the focus of getting a performance advantage. At a time when performance advantages of apparel were relatively unsubstantiated, he was designing his own custom carbon shoes and wearing skin suits at every race. He has even created a software program (Logicycle) to help with Team Lotto-Soudal logistics.
"As a Professional rider, I never realized how the body changes under different stress intensities on the same bike set up. The TYPE-R showed me this already. However, the LVS is game changing where you can pin point every situation in a way for anyone to understand it".
