La nueva arma de Contador Foto: http://www.elmundo.es
15 Feb
2017

El arma secreta de Alberto Contador se llama Emonda. Es una bicicleta de fibra de carbono de última generación, ultraligera, aerodinámica y fabricada a mano en Estados Unidos.

Sólo pesa cinco kilogramos, ideal para la escalada. «Cuando una carrera se decide por escasos segundos, el material que uses puede ser fundamental», advierte el madrileño, que afronta 2017 con el reto de la reconquista del Tour de Francia. Para alcanzar este desafío, el pinteño pretende rentabilizar el rendimiento físico con la adaptación de la tecnología punta a las bicicletas de su nuevo equipo: el Trek, patrocinado por una empresa familiar, domiciliada en Wisconsin y especializada en la fabricación de bicicletas y de componentes relacionados con el ciclismo.

El ciclista, que ayer contó con el respaldo de José Ramón Lete en la presentación de la quinta temporada de los equipos júniors y sub-23 de su Fundación, se muestra ilusionado con su nuevo hogar: «El ambiente es inmejorable. Esto te motiva y te da confianza para el Tour. Este año espero no tener contratiempos para rendir como deseo. Soy exigente y veo que en el Trek todo el mundo está en esta línea». El nuevo curso arranca mañana con la Vuelta a Andalucía, donde coincidirá con Landa y Valverde.Ese elevado nivel de exigencia se traslada a los ámbitos deportivos y técnicos.

La pretemporada ha sido culminada con una concentración en altura en Tenerife y entrenamientos con bicicletas novedosas. Máquinas fabricadas siguiendo concienzudos parámetros de I+D, meticulosos diseños generados por ordenador y complejos software sobre aerodinámica que simulan el comportamiento de los ciclistas en función de su tipología y la superficie donde corran. Dos segundos por puertoUna de esas bicicletas es Emonda, que entusiasma a Contador por su increíble ligereza. «Su chasis pesa 700 gramos, unos 200 menos que las bicicletas que utilizan otros equipos.

Tras realizar varios estudios se ha llegado a la conclusión de que en la subida a un puerto se pueden ganar un par de segundos. Evidentemente, las bielas de las bicis son las piernas de los corredores, pero la mecánica también influye», afirma Luis Muñoz, responsable de marketing de Trek Ibérica.Los especialistas sostienen que los tubos de Emonda son extraordinariamente compactos, lo que reduce muchísimo la presencia de aire entre sus capas. «Llama la atención por su simpleza, la finura de los tubos y la sencillez de los frenos. Sorprende por su rigidez y ligereza», inciden responsables de Trek. El carbono utilizado es de uso militar y su exportación está prohibida fuera de Estados Unidos.

Contador también se ha ejercitado con Madone, más pesada que la anterior, muy aerodinámica y con alerones encima de la horquilla. «Finísima, ni siquiera se ven los cables», explica Luis Muñoz. Es probable que el pinteño la utilice en etapas llanas o de media montaña.

El nuevo equipo también dispone de otro segmento denominado Domane (comparte las mismas letras de Madone y Emonda), creada a petición de Fabian Cancellara y destinada a amortiguar la dureza de las clásicas del norte. «Son bicicletas más largas, con sillín y manillar suspendidos», recalcan. Esta no será utilizada por Contador.Al ciclista madrileño siempre le han apasionado el estudio y la aplicación de las nuevas tecnologías en el ciclismo. «La mecánica no influye tanto como en la Fórmula 1 y en las motos, pero sí puede ser determinante en algunos momentos», señala el pinteño.
