It seems like yesterday, but the U23 project faces its fifth season of existence, five impossible years without the support of all the sponsors who have accompanied us during this journey and to whom we can never stop being grateful.
The Fundación Alberto Contador was set up with two main objectives, the fight against stroke and the promotion of the use of the bicycle and the promotion of cycling as a sport. Both objectives overlap, as practicing sport is also the best way to prevent the disease.
The promotion of cycling began with the creation of the Junior team in 2013 and continued a year later with the launch of the Plaza Eboli Cycling School in Pinto and the U23 squad. Our aspiration is to achieve excellence in this work and to complete in the future the offer to our young cyclists with teams in all categories, including professional, to the extent that we achieve the essential support of sponsors.
For the Fundación Alberto Contador, it is a fundamental objective to provide comprehensive training for young people through the practice of cycling, transmitting them the necessary sporting knowledge, providing them with the material means to carry out their training under the best conditions and, perhaps most importantly, instilling values such as honesty, companionship, respect and sacrifice, which are the backbone of our project, without forgetting either solidarity, which is materialised in the ‘Bicis para la Vida by Skoda’ project, and in the aforementioned fight against cerebral stroke.
