We have been supplying the Richmond Pro Cycling team from the USA for a few years now. They are based in Virginia and are unique in that one of their founding principles is to use cycling to teach leadership and motivation to deprived communities, helping kids with nothing to live for to find some focus. So they go into communities to teach kids to race bikes, but at the same time teach them self-discipline, teamwork and to aspire to a better life.
They are a pro team so they rely on sponsors, but because they do so much for their local community they make themselves a much more attractive proposition. We are very proud to supply their team cycling kit and we look forward to seeing them race with our name on their jerseys again in 2011.
