Sheffield’s elite cycling team, Cycling Sheffield has launched its 2019 team with dreams of competing in Tour de Yorkshire.
The launch was celebrated at Ambulo, a new café set up in the Millennium Gallery.
Dave Coulson, team manager and sporting director said: “There’s nothing like Cycling Sheffield in the UK. I’m a Sheffielder through and through, and I think the city now more than ever has a lot to offer.”
“The team is unique in the UK in that it is primarily about promoting our Sheffield partners, sponsors, and the city as a whole.
“Sheffield is the perfect fit, it’s the outdoor city. It’s a lot of work but it can’t fail.”
The event featured a car embellished with logos of all the local businesses Cycling Sheffield has partnered up with.
On his goals for the team’s future, Mr Coulson said: “A big Yorkshire city backing the Yorkshire team kind of needs to happen, so Sheffield: give us enough money, get behind us, make it happen, be a part of it.”
Ambulo has become a partner of Cycling Sheffield, and will be hosting events for the team throughout the year.
Sally Evans, Founder of Millichamp Limited, a marketing and communications consultancy, said: “There’s a massive amount of value with what Dave’s doing and what the guys are doing on the road. There’s the opportunity to do various things that can help with social responsibility.”
Attendants sipped on Aperol Spritz and toasted to a brighter future.
