Checked out BioRacer factory today
We drove around the little town of Tessenderlo for quite some time before finding the backroad which led to the BioRacer factory. Jonas and I were greeted with a cup of coffee - just what i needed following a long flight of little sleep - upon entering. Within two minutes, Franky was giving us the tour of the factory. They had been around for over 25 years and are currently serving the most teams of any clothing factory. Their specialty is small teams so i guess this would make sense.
I didn't realize that sublimation process to make the clothing entails painting paper, then laying cloth on the paper while subjecting it to super hot temperatures until the paint from the paper transfers to the cloth. But even cooler than that was to witness my actual skinsuit being sewn together - what timing.
Off to bed now. It's 9:38pm and i can no longer keep my eyes open. Slaapwel en tot morgen.
