Cervélo European Press Launch

Cervélo European Press Launch

In March 2013 Canigou Cycling organized the European Press Launch for Cervélo's new RCA-California Frameset here in Girona. We held the event in a small 5-star hotel in one of the most prestigious areas of the Costa Brava.

Eight European cycling journalists tested the new top-of-the-line Cervélo frame over the course of four days. The frame was presented and explained by Cervélo's chief engineer Damon Rinard. He had come all the way from the company head-quarters in Canada and brought along eight brand new handmade RCA frames from California. During their test rides the journalists were accompanied by the professional cyclists Ryder Hesjedal and Andrew Talansky of Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling Team — which was then based here in Girona.

This very well produced advertisement video by the company Garmin ( shows the Garmin-Sharp professionals cycling on some of the legendary roads of Girona. Of course you can also see Ryder Hesjedal and Andrew Talansky on their Cervélo bikes. These are some of the fantastic roads that we cycle here with Canigou Cycling. Enjoy!
