Rubena successful in Brazil and Morocco
The Rubena company riders Martin Horák and Tomáš Vokrouhlík of the BMC Racing Team came a magnificent second place in this year’s pairs’ stage race Brasil Ride. After seven stages and more than 600 kilometres they were only beaten by the Portuguese duo Pinto-Ferreira.
The same riders also took third and fifth place in one of the most difficult mountain bike races in the world, the Milenio Titan Desert, during which they had to face almost 700 km of Moroccan desert over six stages.
These extreme stage races put huge demands not only on the fitness of riders but the quality of their equipment. Rubena 29 x 2.25“ SCYLLA TOP DESIGN bicycle tyres came through without a single defect and supported the outstanding results of the Czech Riders.
