GEOFF Thomas is delighted to welcome aboard Upgrade Bikes and Lezyne as new sponsorship partners of his Le Tour – One Day Ahead challenge.
Upgrade Bikes is supplying former England footballer Geoff and his co-riders with award-winning products made by Lezyne, a global cycling accessories industry leader, to aid their bid to raise £1million for Cure Leukaemia.
Geoff, a leukaemia survivor who has been in remission for ten years, will lead his team in negotiating all 21 stages of the 2015 Tour de France route one day ahead of the professional peloton in July.
The Lezyne products, including LED lights, hand pumps and tyre repair kits, will prove invaluable throughout the riders’ gruelling training sessions.
Matt Killick, of Upgrade Bikes, said: “Upgrade Bikes and Lezyne are thrilled to be a part of such an amazing event.
"The drive and passion for such a worthy cause is the reason we wanted to be involved. We hope that the riders won’t have any punctures during training, but if they do, they are now well equipped to fix them!”
Geoff said: “I’m delighted Upgrade Bikes and Lezyne are supporting Le Tour – One Day Ahead. We need all the help we can get to overcome this tough challenge and the Lezyne products are first rate.
“This support will help me and my team of dedicated riders achieve our goal – not just completing the route but raising £1million to help Cure Leukaemia save more lives.”
