He finished the 2012 season as the number 1 in the UCI world ranking list and will be honoured before the start of the Tour of Catalonia today. He won the Tour of Lombardy and Flèche Wallonne.
He wore the pink jersey at the Giro d’Italia and the red jersey at the Tour of Spain.
And he is all fired up for the 2013 season.
We are of course talking about Joaquim “Purito” Rodriguez, the exceptional Spanish rider in the Katusha World Tour Team.
Just a few days ago he won a stage at the Tirenno-Adriatico and today he’ll be lining up for the start of the Tour of Catalonia with very big ambitions.
Even though Purito certainly won’t be lacking in motivation we have provided him with a new Aeroad CF, which is sure to draw attention from fans and riders (hopefully who have been dropped by Purito) alike.
However we are especially pleased that we can offer you, our fans, something really quite special today.
What you can win:
You can go to the classic road race Liège-Bastogne-Liège and be right up close to both the Katusha team, and of course to Purito when the world’s elite pro riders tackle “La Doyenne”. Of course you also have the chance to meet Purito in person and immortalise this for your friends. Our Social Media Team will accompany you and experience pure bike sport with you. And of course, the costs for travel and accommodation will be covered by us.
We’ll be holding a prize draw for all participants with more great prizes from Katusha and Canyon.
What you have to do:
As a pro sportsman the fans are the most important people to Purito. If you can prove to him that you are his biggest fan, then you are exactly the right person to scoop this great prize.
Send us a photograph or a drawing (max. 5 MB) that will show how passionate a fan you are and convince Purito. Use the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and write in the subject line “I am Purito’s biggest fan”. Remember that the picture must be of you and you have the rights to use it.
By sending us your photo you allow us publish it on Facebook and on our other media channels such as Twitter and Canyon.com.
The closing date for entries is 3 April 2013. We reserve the right to exclude entries which contain offensive or inappropriate images. Canyon or Katusha employees are not permitted to take part and we are of course not able to pay out on any prizes.
What happens next?
We will regularly upload all the photos we receive into a Facebook album so you can see who has so to speak “come out“as a Purito fan. If you wish to have your Facebook name on your photo, then please explicitly state this in your e-mail when entering the competition. Purito will look at all the photos and select the fan who is most convincing and we will then announce the winner on all our media channels. As soon as this happens, we will contact you so that you don’t need to do anything more than simply look forward to a truly fantastic experience.
We wish everyone who takes part in the competition the very best of luck!
The Canyon Team
