At Malco Rent a Car we are proud to announce that the American professional cycling team, Project Echelon Racing, has chosen our mobility services for their exciting expedition across Europe. Project Echelon Racing is visiting both Spain and France with the goal of triumphing in the Challenge Mallorca (from January 24 to 29), La Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (from January 31 to February 4) and the Tour de La Provence (from February 8 to 11).
These races are important events in this sport because they are part of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), which is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The UCI establishes the disciplinary rules of cycling and oversees the classification of races in various disciplines: mountain, road, and time trials, for amateur or professional, male or female.
Project Echelon Racing is more than a team that participates in professional races organized by the UCI. It is also an organization that educates, trains, and empowers American Veterans (individuals who have served in the military for an extended period of time) through exercise and self-discovery. It aids in their recovery and reintegration after the challenging experiences they may have faced during their service and fosters relationships among its members to build a healthy and robust community.
Specifically, the team has rented an 11m³ cargo van to transport their bicycles, spare parts, and other necessary materials, as well as a 9-passenger van to travel together to their destination. Thanks to the spaciousness and features of both vehicles, they will be able to avoid double trips, either between stages or when crossing into the neighboring country. And with all the Malco guarantees: comprehensive insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, flexible modification, among others.
At MALCO, based in Castellón (Spain), we have a fleet of more than a thousand vehicles for individuals, professionals, or companies. It includes vans, refrigerated vans, SUVs, or cars, automatic or manual, electric or gasoline, and vehicles with up to 9 seats, among others. We have physical offices throughout the Valencian Community in Valencia, Alicante, Castellón, and Vila-real. In addition, we have Carsharing bases (hourly rental mode) in Valencia (next to the AVE station) and Castellón.
Malco and Echelon will share the team’s experiences through our Instagram and the Project Echelon Racing Instagram. We invite you to follow us to experience their impressions and the challenges they will face first hand.
