Last Thursday, January 7th 2019, “The Bike of the Year 2019” Awards Gala was held in Madrid. These awards were organised by the Motorpress Ibérica group and brought together all the benchmark entities from the world of cycling at a national level for the 27th year of this event.
By way of the specialised Ciclismo a fondo media, the magazines Bike and Triatlón, and the great biking community that consists of almost 20,000 readers in Spain and Portugal, these awards highlight the year’s leading moments in the world of cycling.
And this time, MAHLE ebikemotion was present in a very special way, since we were awarded the special prize for “Technological Innovation”; a recognition that we were especially pleased to receive, and one that encourages our team to strive to improve every day in each of our technological developments applied to the world of cycling.
It was an immensely proud moment for all of us who are part of MAHLE ebikemotion to share the stage at this gala with international figures from the world of Spanish sports such as Alberto Contador (Sports Career Award) or Rakel Mateo (Award for overcoming), and to share this gala event together with unique figures in cycling in Spain such as Miguel Indurain; figures who valued our contribution to the world of cycling very positively, with the hybrid bicycle systems we develop for the leading world manufacturers of road bikes. In particular these include bikes like the Orbea Gain, Wilier Cento1 Hybrid, Pinarello Dyodo, Bianchi eAria and Rible Endurance SLe, or electronic accessories in eMTB in emblematic bikes such as the BH AtomX Display or Rocky Mountain PowerPlay, among many others.
