The best tennis player in the history of Spain and one of the best in tennis history will from now on be using an F-Podium DC RR whenever he wants to disconnect from the intensity of competition at the highest level on the World Tennis Tour.
At Mondraker we are tremendously proud to announce that Rafa Nadal, the best tennis player our country has ever produced and considered to be the best clay court player in history, will be using one of our bikes: An F-Podium DC RR.
And we are doubly proud because thanks to the values that have taken Nadal to where he is today and which we feel we share: simplicity, humility, respect and work (lots and lots of work), we’re offering him the absolute best product for his training sessions.
The winner of 20 Grand Slam titles and 2 Olympic Gold medals (2008 in Beijing and 2016 in Rio de Janeiro) will be enjoying his fully customized F-Podium DC RR to better disconnect from the demands put on elite level tennis players.
Keeping in mind that the training sessions, competitions and trips which Rafa is involved in are remorseless, every day he manages to disconnect counts as double for him. So Nadal, a great lover of sports in general, will be able to escape from these day to day demands by riding one of our emblematic bikes.
The utmost care has been taken with the customization as shown by the inscription on the left chainstay "Vamos Rafa!", the Nike swoosh with the Mallorcan tennis player’s bull logo; or the Babolat racket tape we’ve used instead of conventional grips. Logically, the F-Podium has Rafa’s distinctive colours and are exclusive to him.
Nadal´s technical team will also be on F-Podiums, so Rafa will be on equal terms whenever he gets the chance to enjoy his Mondraker.
The General Director of Mondraker, Paco Sánchez, as well as Miguel Pina (CEO) and Yuriy Tomas (Marketing Director) travelled to the city of Manacor in Mallorca to deliver the bikes. Nadal was at all times very approachable and delighted with his bike, and said: "It was a huge surprise to see my racket’s colours on my new bike, my Bull logo on the top tube and many more details that this Mondraker has. I was thrilled. It's definitely going to be a good riding companion around Mallorca".
Paco Sánchez had some words to say: "It has been an unforgettable day; we have felt very welcomed by Rafa and his team. I hope he enjoys the bike very much and has a great time with it".
…and Miguel Pina had this to add: "We are proud that a worldwide reference like Rafa Nadal has placed his trust in Mondraker. We so much identify with the values he represents and for us it is an honor to ride alongside him and his great team".
Once again, we are very very excited to have an athlete from the sports elite such as Rafa Nadal teaming up with us, someone who has given us so much joy and who we are sure will continue to do so. From now on, and more than ever before, we can cheer him on when we see him riding up a hill with a "Vamos Rafa!!"
