Alberto Contador will get his 2017 season underway with his new team Trek-Segafredo by riding a customised Project One Trek Émonda which celebrates his victories at all three Grand Tours.
Contador is among the select few to have conquered the Triple Crown of Grand Tours – Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta Vuelta a España – and to celebrate the illustrious career, Trek Bicycle created a Project One Émonda with an Alberto Contador Grand Tour Celebración paint scheme.
“It’s a bike that I really like. I wanted the dominant color to be white and on that basis, we worked.”, said Contador.
“I asked that the design reflects the victories in the three big tours, with the colors of the three maillots. The people of Trek made a design in which you can see the images of the Eiffel Tower, the Duomo Square, and the Cibeles Square, together with a shield of my hometown, Pinto, all united by the motto that I always have in mind when facing great challenges: ‘Querer es poder’ (‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’). The truth is that I’m delighted with the bike, it’s super nice, and I’m looking forward to race with it”.
Each Alberto Contador Grand Tour Celebración Émonda is hand-painted at Trek’s global headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin, and available now to customers world-wide exclusively through Project One.
