Happy Holidays to passionate riders everywhere

We've had a lot of excitement in 2015. We've celebrated our 175th anniversary with you. We've reached glory in racing competitions with Team Cofidis and Visit Dallas DNA.We've trembled before the power of the women of the Luna Chix MTB team…We've caught our breath at the skill of the Orbea Enduro Crew. We've been exhilarated by the records broken by Andrew Starykowicz and the epic races of Albert Moreno. And we've enjoyed each and every one of the teams and ambassadors who work with us.

But none of this would mean anything without you. Without your passion. Without your pedaling. That's why we'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas and share the hope that we will once again fill with passion the roads, mountains and any other terrain we wish to conquer in 2016.

Our joint efforts with Team Cofidis have resulted in numerous victories by our riders. Nacer Bouhanni is already a proven sprinter with important victories this year, among them, two in the Dauphiné Libéré.

Orbea's commitment to women's cycling is reflected by the Visit Dallas DNA American road team, the most powerful squad in the world in its category.

The Czech Republic, Germany, United States, Italy, Canada, England…The best XC circuits in the world have witnessed yet another year of sweat, struggle and passion. This is what the Luna Chix put into every race to reach the top of the podium. And we already have our sights set on Rio 2016!

The Orbea Enduro Crew has traveled halfway around the world to be the fastest in this demanding discipline. Their good vibes and commitment have formed part of the identity of one of the best teams on the course.

Andrew is synonymous with velocity. With records. With beating the clock. With pace. With speed. With victory. He has once again shattered records this year on practically every circuit he has ridden, and his 4:09:13 time at Roth has already gone down in the record books as the best European Tri time in history.

Progress. Strength. Determination. We like to use these words to define Albert Moreno, an extraordinary triathlete of whom we are tremendously proud, for both his career and what the future holds for us together. He's a three-discipline machine who is inseparable from his Ordu.
