The leading bicycle manufacturer provides Playitas Resort with top notch bikes from all categories.

BMC Switzerland  history – The long way to the top

BMC Switzerland was founded in Grenchen (Switzerland) 1994. In the beginning, the company put a strong emphasis on distributing mountain bikes only. BMC Switzerland was established as a well-known brand in Switzerland during the following decade. But their strategy of focusing on the mountain bike segment proved less and less successful in the late 1990s – as this time span marked the beginning of the commercially profitable road bike era. New markets emerged in which BMC Switzerland had no real share.

Things started to change for the better when Swiss entrepreneur Andy Rihs took over in 2000.

Hallo Anja, danke, dass du dir die Zeit für ein kurzes Interview genommen hast. Wann wirst du ins Playitas Resort reisen – und was erhoffst du dir von deinem Aufenthalt?

Ich werde am 14. Januar anreisen und mich dann bis zum 04. Februar im Resort vorbereiten. Von meinem Aufenthalt verspreche ich mir vor allen Dingen Trainingserfolg: Ich will stark und schnell werden für die Saison 2017. Das Playitas Resort ist seit 2011 meine zweite Heimat und Winterdomizil. Hier habe ich perfekte Trainingsbedingungen.

Du hast das Playitas Resort als deine “zweite Heimat” bezeichnet. Kannst du näher erläutern, was du als Elite-Triathletin an Playitas besonders schätzt?

Das Resort hat alles, was man als Triathletin braucht – und das auf höchstem Niveau. Die Trainingsbedingungen sind optimal: Der 50-Meter-Pool auf olympischem Standard fürs Schwimmen. Die perfekten klimatischen Bedingungen und wenig befahrenen Straßen fürs Radfahren. Viele herausfordernde Laufstrecken und hochwertige Laufbänder, sowie ein exzellent ausgerüstetes Fitnesscenter.

Playitas crew rocks Fudenas MTB Marathon 2016

The Fudenas MTB Marathon crosses the island from north to south (158km) through all kinds of typical desert and volcanic landscapes of the island.

Organized by the army taking advantage of a simulation exercise of a population evacuation in case of armed conflict creates a perfect symbiosis with the sport.

This year the participation reached almost 3000 cyclists. Some made the journey in two days (route) and the bravest covered the distance in a single day (race).

Five staff members of Playitas Resort took the start in the race.

Dario Cespa, Jose Maria Alvarez, Sandra Marquez, Luis Arráez and Tomas Delgado.

The hardness of the race this year compounded by the accumulated mud from past rains and the headwind took their toll on our team with mechanical problems and physical problems.

Two of our colleagues reached the finish line with remarkable times. Jose Maria Alvarez finished with a time of 7h24 ‘coming 225th overall while Luis Arráez finished in 6h11’, coming 35th place overall.

Thanks to Playitas Resort we were able to prepare for the race with the support they provided and complete the race in confort thanks to the team kit they provided.

We hope that next year more colleagues and guests will join this adventure.
