STEPHAN UND KATRIN EXPERIENCE AN EXCLUSIVE BIKE TOUR WITH JAN FRODENO IN GIRONA WITH A VISIT OF THE PUMPTRACK
This special day was experienced by our winner Stephan, who participated in the "Tri at Home" raffle in 2020 and our winner Katrin together with her husband, who participated in a follow-up event in 2021/22. Triathlon star Jan Frodeno invited our winner to Girona together with Emili, a Spanish local who was guaranteed a spot for this experience through his donation over 5.000€.
After a quiet night in the beautiful Hotel La Comuna and a comfortable morning we started at 12:30pm. With 27 degrees and sun, the day started for the participants with the fact that they were equipped with top gravel bikes from Canyon and were therefore well prepared for the upcoming training session. After all bikes were adjusted, the first meet & greet with IRONMAN champion Jan Frodeno followed in his cafe below the Hotel La Comuna. All participants were in a great mood and very happy to meet their sports idol in person for the first time.
Afterwards we went on the bikes and explored together the beautiful landscape in and around Girona. During the tour Jan took a lot of time for everyone, was very interested and so everyone could get to know each other well. The tour went uphill and downhill, besides asphalt roads also offroad through forests, beautiful dirt roads and ended at the "Pump Track", a charity project of Frodeno Fun(d), which was built thanks to your donations through our joint raffles & with Laureus Sport for Good especially for socially disadvantaged children & youth in Salt. It has been a huge success, greatly reducing the crime rate! It was very inspiring to get a glimpse and to visit the track ourselves once - 100% fun factor guaranteed!
After the eventful bike tour, there was a well-deserved lunch break before all participants went to a joint dinner with Jan. There were traditional tapas and the atmosphere was great. Jan was in a good and happy mood and talked in detail about his time as a triathlon star - among other things about his training workload, nutrition and mental preparation ahead of an IRONMAN. At the end, beautiful Polaroid photos were taken, which Jan directly signed for the participants as a souvenir. During a night walk we went over the brightly lit cathedral of Girona then back towards the hotel! What a great day!
The next day Stephan and Emili went back home. Katrin and Jens spontaneously decided to add another four days of vacation in Barcelona! We thank all participants for this great experience and the good mood. A big thanks goes out to Jan, who took a lot of time for the event and made this day unforgettable for everyone.
All donations collected during the two raffles went to the benefit of Frodeno Fun(d), which is a non-profit association based in Girona, whose mission is to positively influence the lives of socially disadvantaged children in the socially deprived area of the Salt district, with the help of sport and especially with the "tool" of the bicycle.
