New Zealander Logan Currie (22) wil join Lotto Dstny in 2024. The promising young rider will strengthen the team in hilly races and smaller stage races.
“I’m still very young, but I consider myself as a GC-rider and time trial specialist”, says Logan. “I’m really looking forward to join Lotto Dstny next year and I think I will learn a lot in this new environment. The team invested a lot in the performance cell and I’m convinced I can make a lot of progress in this new team.”
Currie is from New Zealand, but knows Belgium very well. As a young rider he lived three years in our country, 1 year near Bruges, 1 year near Oudenaarde and 1 year in Avelgem when he raced for a continental team. “But I’m not a cobble or classic specialist. I love racing here, but I’m more a rider for the GC and a time trial specialist. I want to help the team in hard climbing races or chase the escapees in flat stages for our sprinters. I want to support the team as much as possible and when I get the chance to go for an own result, I will grab this opportunity with both hands.”
The New Zealander signed a contract for one year, in 2024. “Logan is still a very young, but a promising rider”, says sports manager Kurt Van de Wouwer. ‘We don’t have a lot of riders with his profil and he will strengthen our team in the smaller stage races and in races with a hilly parcours. Together with our performance cell we believe he can take the next step in our team.”
