This company is specialized in outdoor sports products and services, including cycling, supports our squad in 2021 and provides us with the Wahoo element bolt cycling computer. Very powerful!

We tell you that this year we have renewed the partnership  with 14 OCHOMILES. This is a 100% Colombian brand and is  specialized in products and services for outdoor activities, including route, gravel, MTB and urban cycling.

The bike riders of the FUN team are able to use great technology to measure their evolution , thanks to the partnership with 14 OCHOMILES. The Element Bolt Wahoo cyclo-computers is a brand that 14 OCHOMILES officially distributes in Colombia and they are a very valuable asset in the process that we do with the U-16 and U-18 squads.

For the sports director and U-18 coach, Wilson Sandoval,  having this tool at your disposal is a huge help. “It is very important to consider the sciences applied to sport to observe the projection of our bike riders. The cyclo-computer offers us multiple data such as cadence, power, heart rate, among others.  They are very useful to work on your training plans to improve your performance”.

“Supporting the FUN Team is a source of pride. Knowing that we are part of one of the most important professional bike riders academy in the country is very exciting. One of  14 OCHOMILES’s major purpose  is to promote cycling as a lifestyle and as a sporting activity. This lines up with the project of developing  FUN Team’s young  talents. Over the years, they  have demonstrated a commitment to help fulfill their dreams”, said John Hernandez, marketing coordinator of 14 OCHOMILES.

Other teams using Wahoo cyclo-computers from the UCI World Tour teams are Arkea Samsic, Bora Hansgrohe, Ag2r Citroën and Deceuninck Quickstep.

This company has a high commitment to the environment, promoting ecological awareness with its slogan “(Re)vive afuera” (re-live outside) , which we share. Lined up  with that philosophy and their values, since 2018 we have been organizing FUN Box. This Box is a campaign where we collect used sports equipment in good condition and donate them to other foundations or cycling clubs. The purpose is  to multiply smiles of girls, children and teenagers who love cycling  and need tools to  follow their practice and motivate them to continue playing sport.

We are very happy to have the support of 14 OCHOMILES in this journey that we walk together. Believing in the dreams of dozens of teenagers who aspire to be professional bike riders, supporting them in an integral way from  the principles and values and the hand of the sciences of sport.
