If the previous Get Creative paint job was done on an Exploro, now it’s time to go back to the road, and do a cool example on a Strada, so let’s Juan Antonio guide us through the process:
One of my favourite moments during the 3 Grand Tours working for Eurosport is producing a Recon. They are normally filmed very early in the morning and we illustrate and describe how the race will be later on when the riders arrive to that climb, descent or hectic final. Early last month 3T came out with the idea of me joining the “Get Creative” project before Tour de France, I contacted Marc Garcia from Magaro Paintings for the paint and the process kicked off immediately.
Check the gallery with images of the making of the design:
Firstly Marc came to my home to discuss the design. We both agreed that it would be nice to include some elements of my activity at Eurosport, Tour de France and my roots.
Marc was excited on featuring “LIVE” on the frame as a reference to Eurosport’s coverage; a recording red dot as a pun to bring up the Recon and the filming; an airstrip linking to a stage victory in Tour de France and Argentinian colours on the fork.
However, the colours needed more time to be decided. We went through different options but ended up combining the 2 that I like the most on the STRADA: blue and coral.
Here’s a photo gallery of the final result, let us know what you think in the comments below!:
Couple of weeks later the frame was painted and ready to hit the road in France.
