Gerard van Laar

AUG 12, 2020

Gerard was born in a small village in the Netherlands and up to this day has been struggling to grow a full beard. But don’t be fooled to think that the man has no interesting stories to tell. In fact, there are plenty of them considering that he has cycled through Turkey, Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iceland, USA, Russia and Mongolia and has studied and worked in France, Switzerland, The Czech Republic, USA and The Netherlands. Gerard is also a passionate climber, the founder of the Clean Climber foundation and the inventor of a unique product currently going by the name of Edelrid Balance.

And whenever Gerard hasn’t been on his crazy adventures, he’s been taking part in the development of exciting projects such as Ten Kate Racing, Mission Motors, Trefecta, Suter Racing Technology, Gordon Muray T25 and many others. With a masters degree in automotive engineering and such extensive experience in the field, it is no wonder that we wanted to bring him on board. Thus, after several months of remote collaboration, Gerard made his way to our HQ in Varna and became part of our team.
