ELITE

FORTUNEO VITAL-CONCEPT

The French team has been making progress since its creation in 2005. Following their debut at the 2014 Tour de France, where they proved to be one of the most dynamic teams in the competition, they have been invited every year since. Established in Brittany, the team will exhibit its combative nature in all of the races it competes in. To this end, its ranks include quality cyclists such as sprinter Dan McLay, promising Argentinian cyclist Eduardo Sepúlveda, or 2009 stage winner Brice Feillu. Our #Dharma will again be taking part in the greatest cycling race on Earth.

CAJA RUAL RGA

The team known as the 'Green Wave' are experiencing a sporting coming of age. They are a regular in the Vuelta a España, where they are always worth watching. The team has experienced notable growth in recent years, and is currently the best team in the Professional Continental category in Spain. The team has had a notable impact in recent seasons, leading its legions of fans (the so-called 'Green Wave') to have high hopes of stirring things up at the big races to come; with both old a new team members alike adding to expectations, notably Chris Butler and Yuri Trofimov. In any event its basic structure remains the same with superclass riders such as Lluis Mas, climber David Arroyo (2nd at the 2010 Giro d´Italia) or Eduard Prades. Their 'weapons' of choice in 2017 are the #Dharma helmet, the #Arqus sunglasses and a lot of commitment.

MMR FACTORY TEAM

Without a doubt the best XCountry team in Spain. Their results in the Mountain Bike World Cup speak for themselves. The team has two outstanding riders in Pablo Rodríguez and David Valero, who will represent the MMR Factory Racing Team at the XCO World Cup, where both are no strangers to a podium finish. The rest of the team combines quality and youth, and is focussed on long distance trials. A consolidated structure with the most complete national CX team. This season they will be using #Dharma helmets, and #Altube-MC competition footwear.

OMX PRO TEAM

The OMX Pro Team is UCI's Elite team, a paradigm of hope, daring and a job well done. What's more, in 2017 they achieved their best team result, finishing 12th in the UCI raking. This year's team is comprised of four riders: Annie Last (England), Isla Short (Scotland), Martin Gluth (Germany) and Mariske Strauss (South Africa). The OMX Pro Team's goal is to occupy the number one slot in the world ranking prior to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The team's humble beginnings in 2004, as a group of riders from Essex in South East England, are far from such ambitious plans. With dedication and passion, over the years the OMX Pro Team has grown to become one of the strongest teams in its category. OMX has a unique history. Which is why each step along the way is so special.

EUSTRAK EUSKADI

The Eustrak-Euskadi track cycling team is set compete against the best track cyclists in the world at the World Cup. Created to strengthen track cycling, the team has enabled rider's raw talent to be translated into superior results, as in the case of Leire Olaberria (silver at the Beijing Olympics), Unai Elorriaga (UCI ranking leader in 2012) or Olympians Hodei Mazkiaran and Tania Calvo. The team competes in several disciplines around the world: Omnium, Pursuit, Time Trial, Keirin... Which is an excellent test bench for our products, as these “beasts” really push their cycling materials to the limit.

BOYACA

The project under which global figure Nairo Quintana set out, is the sponsor for this project, which aims to bring renewed success to Colombian cycling and boost its spectacular racing. The Boyacá es Para Vivirla team was presented on Tuesday in Bogota and will be captained by Cayetano Sarmiento and Héiner Parra, national riders with a history of European cycling. A team to follow, containing the future of Columbian cycling, a country with an indisputable cycling tradition.

MARIO MOLA

He has established himself beyond all doubt as the fastest runner at triathlons. The current World Triathlon Series champion is already an acclaimed figure. Having had a dream season in partnership with Spiuk; continuously improving. Mario Mola has already been Junior World Champion and the youngest triathlete amongst London 2012 participants. He now tops the global rankings, and will be the rider to beat. A spectacular triathlete, methodical and with his feet firmly on the ground. Clearly his #Dharma or #Obuss helmet and #Trivium-C shoes will not go unnoticed on the circuit. Watch the fireball!

DAN MACLAY

The British sprinter is one of the fastest cyclists on the plant. Little by little he is earning the respect of that most unique of species, the sprint cyclist! And his personality has undoubtedly helped him win over the public also. Currently a member of the Fortuneo-Vital Concept team set to compete in the Tour de France, where he will be laser focussed on victory with the #Obuss. He also uses #Arqus or #Mamba sunglasses to add another notch to his tally of sprint victories. Don't loose sight of his moustache!

ENEKO LLANOS

Born in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Eneko Llanos is one of the most renowned long distance triathletes. He participated in the fist triathlon to be held at an Olympics, in Sydney in 2000. After Athens 2008, he needed new incentives, and so he focused on long distance triathlon. At his first participation in Hawaii in 2007 he finished fifth, and won Ironman Lanzarote, one of the toughest on Earth. Eneko's Ironman record includes three times among the top ten finishers in Ironman Hawaii and victory at the Ironman European Championship Frankfurt, finishing in less than 8 hours – quite an achievement for this staunch vegan who has helped SPIUK develop its new #Aerosleeve trisuit, especially designed for the triathlon.

CHARLOTTE MCSHANNE

A young Charlote Mcshane stole the show in 2013. Wearing the #Dharma helmet and the #rivium-Ctriathlon shoes, Charlotte became the Olympic distance U23 ITU World Triathlon Champion. The Scottish redhead expects 2017 to be an equally fruitful year, and she will do her best, of that you can be sure. One to keep an eye on in the coming years. The future of the triathlon is hers for the taking.

PABLO RODRÍGUEZ

His notable passage through the lower categories left no one indifferent. Although always a discrete worker, his performances on the bike quickly singled him out as a young MTB promise. In his last year an U23, his sporting maturity has enabled him to wear the leaders jersey at the World Cup after a stunning triumph at Albstadt. His inclusion in the elite category, is a mere continuation of his ongoing performance improvement, having been included amongst the top 10 riders at the World Cup and Championships in his first year.

MARISKE STRAUSS

Don't be fooled by Mariske's everlasting smile. When she enters “Competition Mode” the South African takes no hostages. She is one of the most versatile riders in the XCountry World Cup, and progresses each season. As evidenced by her continuous ascendancy in the World Cup Rankings, and her multiple victories at the South African Mountain Bike Championships. Mariske is set to remain at OMX for another year, and intends to put her #Altube MC and #Dharma helmet, which she loves, to the test.
