    will do
    Our tyres are requested by so many professional teams every year that we
    inevitably have to turn some away! Our celebrated tubulars are manufactured
    in the time honoured way meaning we must cap the amount supplied to
    teams in order to keep up with consumer demand. So the tyres that you see
    being used by Robbie McEwan or Alexandre Vinokurov are the exact same
    tyres that are available to you.
    The Choice of Champions
    World and Olympic champions race on Continental tyres – the preferred brand
    season after season. The experience of these top professionals is continuously
    integrated into our tyre development, therefore it comes as no surprise that
    celebrated racing champions and international mountain bike stars make
    Continental their tyres of choice. World-class cyclists such as Erik Zabel or
    Alexandre Vinokurov of the Telekom team, Peter van Petegem or the
    Australian Robbie McEwen of the Lotto Domo team, Jens Voigt or Stuart
    O'Grady of the Credit Agricole team, or Team Phonak with new signing
    Tyler Hamilton – all put their victory on the line with tyres made by
    In the UK, the World Tandem Hour Record was recently broken by Glenn
    Taylor & Zak Carr, on Continental rubber.
    In the 24 hour ‘Sleepless in the Saddle’ MTB marathon, the winning ‘Team
    Tomac’ were all users of our new Vapor ProTection tyre.
    In Triathlon & Ironman, international competitors such as Lothar Leder, Marc
    Jenkins, Lori Bowden, Tim Don, Spencer Smith, Richard Jones, Becky
    Gibbs Lavelle and Natascha Badmann also specify race-proven Continental
    Perhaps the best confirmation of the reliability & high performance can be
    gained from the past three winners of Paris-Roubaix. This is the toughest
    road race in the world on both competitors & equipment. In 2001, 2002 &
    2003 the winning rider was using Continental Competition tubulars!
    Only the best
