New custom Émonda SLR to celebrate a true legend
This bold signature Grande Alberto theme celebrates the palmarès of Alberto Contador’s cycling career. The unique combination of Quicksilver matte and Metallic Charcoal gloss finish provides a distinct visual line while the frame is decorated with marks that highlight the three Grand Tours on the seat tube and overall career race victories on the seat stays. The bike also shares Alberto’s personal mantra of “Querer Es Poder” on the downtube, that translates to “where there’s a will there’s a way”. From Alberto himself:
"The details that have been put into it, commemorating the most important moments of my palmarès and some of the symbols and ideas that reflect my way of being and that characterize me as a rider, makes this bike really special."
On Saturday, Contador will take the start of the Vuelta a España and vie for one last Grand Tour title on a custom-made Trek Émonda SLR, a one-of-a kind bike specially crafted to celebrate his distinguished palmarès. The unique paint scheme includes references to all the major races he has won, from the three grand tours to Paris-Nice, Tour of the Basque Country, and Tirreno-Adriatico.
During his time with Trek, Contador won his first Tour de France (2007) before moving to Astana and winning it again in 2009. He also won the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta in 2008.
As Alberto embarks on his final race of his career, he will race on a bike as spectacular as his victories. Secure a part of history with this amazing bike.
