Buff MTB Pro Team : elite riders using TwoNav Devices

There’s no place for boredom with the Buff Mtb Pro Team. This was demonstrated in 2015 a stellar season for the team, packed with big challenges and excellent results. Now they have everything set to begin 2016 and for another year they will seek to give it their all at the most demanding and prestigious stage-based mountain bike races, and as always accompanied by their Anima+ devices. TwoNav didn’t want to miss out on the chance to continue to support this great team.

The members of the Buff MTB Pro Team

This year’s team is headed up again by Pau Zamora, serving as both a rider and team manager and supported by the two very accomplished riders Joan Llordella and Antonio Ortiz, with whom he has already competed during previous seasons. This year they are joined by a fourth member Adriá Noguera, the youngest of the squad but boasting a long athletic career and strong results in XCO and marathon events. “Having teammates you are in tune with and you can relate to is vital when you’re on teams of two and pedaling for hours together, at times facing some very trying situations. Your trust in your partner is as important as in your equipment,” Pau explained.

The Buff MTB Pro Team and the equipment it relies on

The team will be counting on the Anima+ GPS throughout the season. In most of the races in which it will participate the use of a GPS is already mandatory and of course on all of them it is recommended. As much of the calendar is international and the team usually gets to the area a few days in advance, our devices will be of great use to them to train on site. The bicycles are also an important element and there will be changes in 2016: the brand will be BH, one that “perfectly suits the demanding levels of the competitions in which we participate.”

An exciting calendar

After Orbea Monegros Bike Marathon, TwoNav Empordà BTT Extrem, Cape Epic, Transandes Challenge, Andalusia Bike Race (and currently Transsylvania Epic), The Buff MTB Pro Team will have many other exciting journeys all over the globe.

At TwoNav we appreciate their trust in us, and look forward to the start of a new season that promises to be spectacular.

David Cachón… the very special TwoNav ambassador

David Cachón is a professional cyclist in the broadest sense of the term. Passion, expertise, an admirable career and a surprising ability to evolve, have made him a renowned figure in this world. Today he lives by and for cycling , and we are sure that TwoNav’s new ambassador will impress, and have people talking.

The beginnings of a great cyclist

David Cachón has been riding bikes since as far back as he can remember. Born in Zaragoza 37 years ago, although he still lives there we could say that he has become the rider he is today travelling all over the world, and that he is above all, an adventurer.

He began competing in Trial events and was twice crowned world champion in this discipline in both 1997 and 2000. During that stage of his life he also made the Guinness Book for a straight drop on a bike and his results simply couldn’t be better. Then a new modality hit the scene called Freeride, which he fell in love with and adapted his style to. David was drawn to this discipline as it allowed him to employ all his technical skills while – and this is always important for a restless soul like his – continuing to learn, and he was soon going head to head with the world’s best riders. Today he’s still there, at the top, and doing things his very own way, having created a unique style featuring a fusion of Trial, BMX and Freeride, applying it to Enduro and road cycling.

In the purest David Cachón style

To pursue this original project he has stepped away from competition and is exploiting his incredible riding skills in a different way: searching for settings with spectacular scenery, in mountains and cities, to perform his tricks and create the most beautiful pictures possible. And unimaginable ones: the idea is to be creative, to do what no one has thought of before. In a way, it verges on art.

“The good thing about these modalities is that not everything is measured by competition,” says David. He stopped competing at around age 26 or 27 when he was still at the top, going against the grain with what was a spontaneous decision. He simply decided to pursue his yearning to travel and discover, and this gave rise to this whole new approach to riding: “At the end of the day, competition is always the same, and in the same place.” In the end it turned out that his sponsors also liked the move – even more even than the excellent results he obtained during his competitive career. Who would have predicted it? By following his heart he had found the perfect way to make his passion his way of life, and he was determined to do it right. After that it was trip after trip and although he says that each one has something special and brings back extraordinary memories, he particularly remembers his trips to Japan, Greece, and his journey last year to Jerusalem and Israel.

David Cachón’s 2016 season, with TwoNav

There are various challenges slated for 2016  though no specific dates yet. The first will be in late January: he will climb a via ferrata in the Aragonian Pyrenees with his bike on his back to access to a path promising a spectacular descent. This will be the first of many adventures he will undertake with his TwoNav, which is “made up of young people eager to try new things, so we are on the same page.” For his specialty both orienteering and planning ahead are essential, so he is bound to make great use of our Anima+ and also our famed Land products.

At TwoNav we can say that feeling is mutual as we are really excited about the touch of originality that he is going to bring to the table, and of course we applaud his creativity. He is certainly going to be a very special ambassador.
