Where does it end?
We all know that Peter Theunis has been doing really well in recent seasons, and the first races of 2017 seem to indicate that he will be a force to be reckoned with this year as well, especially for the championships. We will continue to watch his results, and we assume we will be able to bring you another report about his excellent achievements as the season progresses.
