The Madrid towns of Cadalso de los Vidrios and Cenicientos will host this Friday and Sunday the Spanish Cycling Championships, which will be very special for the Idemticos project of the Contador Foundation. The reason is none other than the debut as ambassadors of three new athletes who will be part of the Madrid event.
The Andalusian Jairo Ruiz (Almería; 1988), the Galician Cristian Silva (O Rosal, Pontevedra; 1990) and the Madrilenian Raúl Vallinot (1983) will join the Catalan José Manuel Dosdad (1973) and the Madrilenians Carlos Javier Mozos (1975), Eva Moral (1982) and Gonzalo García Abella (1996). During this week some of the ambassadors went to the Plaza Éboli Cycling Academy to collect material and visit the boys and girls of the academy.
Idemticos is the project of the Contador Foundation aimed at promoting recreational and leisure cycling among people with disabilities, whether physical or mental, through the Plaza Éboli Cycling Academy. Aware of the importance of competition in generating visibility, the Foundation has several ambassadors who it supports in the development of their cycling activity within their respective categories.
Idemticos’ activities are carried out through the Plaza Éboli Cycling Academy and the Foundation has a fleet of adapted vehicles: handbikes, tricycles and tandems.
“The Idemticos project is one of the most beautiful and satisfying of all the projects we promote at the Alberto Contador Foundation. The outbreak of the COVID-19 health emergency greatly conditioned its start-up and growth and also led us to start with a smaller number of ambassadors, but during this 2021 we have already been able to work with a certain degree of normality. Since its inception we have received a very positive response and this is largely thanks to the work of our ambassadors, who help us in a decisive way to make it known,” says from the Fundación Paco Romero.
