About Andrei we spoke in a past article on our blog, as he represents Qubiz at various bike competitions, being organised in Romania and abroad. This year, he rode his bike in 16 competitions, managing to finish in the top 3 in 15 of them. For the next year, he has many plans; one of them is to participate in more competitions than he had this year. We wish him good luck.
