Suspension specialist Paul Klopp who over the years has worked with European roads greats, such as Finland’s Tuukka Korhonen and Olaf Romijn, is set to return to Belgium and Germany’s most famous roads venues Chimay and Frohburg this year alongside participating in the Belgian Twin Trophy series.
Linking up with Team Zuurbier to pilot a brand new Ninja 650 Kawasaki, the upcoming road racer is excited about the season ahead.
“For me it’s a great opportunity to ride for Team Zuurbier on the new Kawasaki! I am looking forward to a nice partnership together with this experienced crew.
With my experience as a rider, but especially as a professional suspension setup specialist, it is my job to make a steady bike and team in this class for the future.
I will take this job very seriously. Beside this my personal goal is to continue with improving my results as I did in 2017.
I already want to thank everyone who helps and supports me in every way, we will make a great season of it!”

Fellow roads competitor and new employer, Marcel Zuurbier added:
“In Paul we see a fast enthusiastic rider with a very technical background. As a team we already worked together with Paul for the last seasons, (Setup-wise).
We are happy that we can give him the opportunity to race in the Belgian Twin Trophy on a competitive bike, and also to develop the Ninja 650 together.
Our goal is to develop the bike and the total package for the future, so that we can grow together in the international Supertwin scene.”
