Invacare would like to congratulate all the winners and those who participated!

Visitors were offered refreshment during the races at the Invacare® Top End® booth which was placed in front of the race ceremony area. Invacare products were on display such as the Küschall Advance®, the Invacare® Top End® Force 2 and Force RX, for people to try them out. Invacare product specialists were there to answer any questions on the products and an Invacare® Top End® technician offered free technical service to the athletes before and during the race.

Invacare was glad to receive the visit of Catalan customers who wanted to attend this great event for the weekend.
