AROBS Marathon Faget - a tight MTB competition


AROBS Marathon Faget, a popular mountain biking competition, organized by Clujul Pedaleaza, took place last Sunday (April 27). The event had AROBS as main partner.

Over 900 cyclists (a record number of participants) from Transylvania and the rest of the country rode Sunday in the 30km and 70km marathon races, in teams, or as individual contestants. 
The bikers enthusiastically participated in this famous MTB marathon striving to surpass personal records, whether or not they were familiar with the trails outside Cluj. Some of them were striving to surpass personal records, and others, the most talented and trained of them, aimed for a podium finish or, at least, a good ranking. 

AROBS Marathon Faget is the first stage of the Cluj Bike Challenge 2014, a biking competition consisting of three marathon races. The results of each stage will add up and, in the end, a "Best Marathons 2014"Champion will be chosen.

Our ten colleagues who participated in the AROBS Marathon Faget rode decisively. By overcoming technical difficulties they crossed the finish line with pride. Among our colleagues was Voicu Oprean, AROBS founder and CEO. All of them participated for fun but also for a humanitarian cause: to help Mrs. Ramona Rus raise funds for her cancer surgery. Ramona has a four years old son, Eduard, who also likes to ride a bike. Not only Arobsians, but other competitors as well chose to promote this cause, by wearing a sticker with a message of encouragement on their shirts during the marathon. For a total of 60 people who completed the race, AROBS donated the amount of 3.275 RON (50 RON for each 30km race and 75 RON for each 70 km race).

At the AROBS booth (in the Polus Center parking lot) the competitors were invited to take a picture together with their bicycles in order to enter the "My bike and I" Facebook contest for a Smailo Web Energy 9.7" tablet. Also at our stand, the public received information about our products, Smailo and TrackGPS, some of which are specially designed for cyclists, i.e. Bike GPS Tracker.

Overall, both the contestants and the audience enjoyed a nice event, a true biking festival which, besides the competition itself was seasoned with music, MC, product presentation stands, and the famous goulash for all participants. The award ceremony ended a difficult and beautiful day. The public contributed a lot to the gaiety of the festivities by cheering and applauding the competitors along the trails and making noise with AROBS branded hand clappers. 

"To support outdoor activities by partnering with events that promote sports and nature has become a tradition for AROBS. Mountain biking mixes physical activity with outings and with technology and it is one of the most popular sports in AROBS." said Mr. Oprean Voicu, CEO of AROBS.

We thank those who made possible this beautiful mountain biking event: the participants, the organizers, their partners and all those who supported our humanitarian cause.  

Congratulations to all!
