The two cyclists achieved Spain’s first medal in the Paralympic Games when they won the Bronze in the pursuit event
The tandem from Murcia won the Silver Medal at the Para-Cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles in 2011
Before saying goodbye to 2012, Inmesol would like to pay homage to the two TándemMurcia athletes. We started sponsoring the team a year ago when we signed an agreement with the aim of offering our company’s support for this Paralympics sporting event, which symbolises the values of effort and self-improvement that guide our company’s business activity.

Besides showing our corporate brand on the sportsmen’s team kit, our commitment as sponsors of TándemMurcia was to strive to assure the presence of the team at the different adapted cycling events set for the 2012 calendar. At the time, Miguel Ángel Clemente expressed his appreciation for our sponsorship, saying, “I wish to thank Inmesol for its support. Without its help it would be very difficult to tackle the coming season with guarantees, since we have the Para-Cycling Track World Championships and, in particular, the London Paralympics 2012 coming up”.
Here is the triumphal race
Miguel Ángel Clemente, who has a visual disability, and his guide, Javier Muñoz, outpaced the Irish team, James Brown and Damien Shaw, with a time of 4:24.015 in a thrilling race that was decided in the last kilometre.
