My Vision: Kenda supports Marco Aurelio Fontana in new quest

 

"My Vision. Racing bikes but also creating and sharing contents, travelling between the best events in the World, staying close to the community." - Marco Aurelio Fontana

After many successful years racing the cross country World Cup (including a bronze Olympic medal), Marco Aurelio Fontana has chosen a new path: Sharing his passion for two wheels - his way. Kenda is proud to follow Fontana on his journey in his new role of E-MTB ambassador. Not leaving his racing history behind, Fontana will race the Italian E-Enduro series and other selected races, such as stops of the E-EWS.

Having been already involved in the development of the Kenda Booster during his time with Team Bianchi, Fontana will continue to contribute to the development of e-mtb tires with his experience and insight. His tires of choice will be the Hellkat and Nevegal 2 with EMC casing.

Having Kenda on my side for this new project is such a big thing for me! After two years of enjoying the products and racing all over the world I finally have the chance to ride more, test more and develop products for tough conditions, especially on E-MTBs. Racing will be still on the program because this is where the hardest testing is done, but I want to create more contents and show what I’m capable of and what a pro can do on an e-bike. Good things to come, I’m so excited! - Marco Aurelio Fontana
We are excited to continue our partnership with Marco Fontana and support his new project. In the past two years, Kenda invested a lot in the development of E-MTB tires and will continue to do so. Having Fontana ambassador for our EMC technology is absolutely great for us! - Hubert Hager (Kenda Marketing Manager Europe)
