The season’s here and it’s race time! So, how do you fancy being part of an exciting new sponsored race team, Racetime Events RT?
This brand new team has big ambitions, and is looking for the final Race Team member. There is a comprehensive sponsorship package on offer, which includes a Phian custom carbon bike to the athlete who can help achieve top honours at the National Club Relays in Nottingham in August.
Racetime Events is a dynamic new multisport company based in Leicestershire. As well as putting on the Leicester and Desford Sprint Triathlons, they’re hoping to open a new open-water swimming facility near Loughborough, the home of many of Britain’s top triatheltes.
The team already has some high calibre athletes signed up. If you think you could join Craig Twigg (7th and the top British athlete at IM South Africa this past weekend), Richard Jeggo and Rich Sumpter and focus on the goal of becoming a national champion, Racetime Events wants to hear from you now.
Johnny Nicol of Racetime Events says: “We’re offering the final race place out to the triathlon community. As we’re East Midlands based, we’d probably favour a local athlete, so that they can benefit from training with the other team members, but it’s not essential to be local, the most important thing is to be fast and motivated!
“We’re a new company and our events are aimed at all levels of athlete. We’re excited about the race team and looking forward to seeing who applies for the final place. It’s a small team this year, and we hope to grow it in the future, maybe to include a women’s team as well.
“The Race Team would suit a young up-and-coming athlete, or maybe someone who has been around a while and is looking for a bit of support. We’re looking for a sprinter really to help strengthen the relay team.”
The Phian bike comes equipped with Ultegra groupset and deep section rims*. You can chose from a road or time-trial bike depending on your 2012 season goals. The package includes other kit such as Proskin compression clothing, Sunwise sunglasses, USN nutrition, a personalised 1BandID, Ashmei running gear and a POWERbreath trainer.
As well as the fantastic sponsorship package, Racetime Events can assist with coaching.
