Olympic star goes up in the world on a special EC-130 E

Our track star Malgorzata ‘Gosia’ Wojtyra is bound for the Rio Olympics in August and is currently preparing at altitude on her special, hand painted Planet X EC-130 E.

Gosia is certain to be selected for the Polish Olympic track team - after winning a silver medal in the World Championships earlier this year - and this unique, silver EC-130 E was dispatched direct from our artisan Italian painters to her after her track success (carrying a ‘Squalo’ prototype code name).

Gosia is in the Sierra Nevada in southern Spain with her Planet X Women’s Cycling team mates – all riding EC-130 Es - where the roads rise up to over 3,000 metres altitude.

Cadel Evans famously used the slopes of the Sierra Nevada to prepare for his 2011 Tour de France win and the road up to Pico del Veleta is the highest paved road in Europe. Coincidentally, Evans raced a rebadged Planet X Stealth bike to time trial victory in the 2007 Tour de France.

Women's team dominate on EC-130 E

Throughout 2016 we have been supporting the activities and Olympic dreams of seven talented female track and road cyclists. The Planet X Women’s Cycling team riders are already national and international track and road champions.

The team's successes on the EC-130 E this season have included dominating the Bedford Three-Day race in May with the race win and all the available category jerseys.

We hope you will join us in wishing Gosia all the best as she prepares for Rio!

You can buy a limited edition hand painted EC-130 E with a host of top quality European components here with this uniquely Euro edition.

It's packed with European goodness and the added sweetner of a bargain priced, optional Vision Metron wheel upgrade.

Gosia's silver medal from the 2016 World Track Championships.
