With a heavy heart, we have to announce to you that our CEO Filip Carpentier has passed away. He was the driving force behind bicycle wholesaler Minerva and the Continental Cycling Team Minerva. Next to being an extraordinary entrepreneur, he was above all a warm and kind family man with the heart in the right place. His punchline has always been ‘Cycling for Life’, and now he is making his way to his final destination. As a team we would like to try to deal with this dramatical loss in the most possible serene manner.

Business will continue at the same pace. The team is committed 200% to guarantee continuity. Filip's slogan 'cycling for life' will be continued in his name with the same passion.
