Over 1,000 bikes in use by athletes and children alike

Pinarello provides for Olympic champs and school kids

Months after Pinarello signed up as British Cycling’s official bike supplier, over 800 bikes from the brand are being used daily by Go-Ride coaches.

Over 250 Pinarello bikes are also being used across the organisation’s Olympic programmes to the benefit of 90 athletes in training and competition.

Pinarello’s President Fausto Pinarello said: “We are very pleased with our partnership with British Cycling. It is an honour for us to assist one of the world’s leading national cycling teams and to support British athletes on their journey to London 2012. We hope we can jointly celebrate great results before and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

British Cycling CEO Ian Drake added: “Our partnership with Pinarello is going from strength-to-strength and our athletes and coaches have praised the bikes for their lightness, durability, stiffness, comfort and overall performance.”

“The fact that the partnership is not only benefitting our elite riders, but also helping more young people get involved in our sport is hugely important to us. We hope that by providing young, talented riders with the opportunity to hone their skills on excellent bikes, supported by our Go-Ride programme, they can start their own journeys to the top in the best possible way.”
