Avanti Racing will be known as Avanti IsoWhey Sports in 2016 with the announcements that the nutritional sponsor of the team is stepping up as co-naming sponsor for the new season.
The Australian Performance Cycling Network today announced the addition of IsoWhey Sports as a Co-Naming Rights Sponsor for 2016/17. Avanti Racing Team had an incredible 2015 season amassing an impressive 54 victories including 13 UCI wins and another individual and teams National Road Series crown. The elevation of yet another one of their riders in talented Kiwi Paddy Bevin to the World Tour ranks next season stands as another highlight.
Team owner Steve Price is really excited to have IsoWhey Sports sit alongside long time sponsor Avanti. “IsoWhey Sports has been our Official Nutrition Sponsor throughout 2015. To have the brand step up as a Co-Naming Rights Sponsor is a great endorsement,” Steve said. “IsoWhey Sports nutrition is unmatched in its ingredient quality and its science; they are very serious about the cycling market and we are the perfect vehicle to showcase their sports nutrition supplements and the IsoWhey Sports brand.”
Commenting on the partnership, IsoWhey Sports Managing Director Nathan Cheong said, “IsoWhey Sports is proud to be the Co-Naming Rights Sponsor of the Avanti Racing Team in 2016. The IsoWhey Sports range has been developed for endurance athletes seeking optimal performance and recovery, and the Avanti Racing Team with its impressive 2015 season and competitive excellence, is the perfect fit for our sports nutrition offering”.
Avanti are equally enthused about the addition of another quality sponsor with Managing Director Steve Paraskevas looking forward to another year with Oceania’s number one team. “Our commitment to the team and to Australian and New Zealand Cycling is as strong as ever. The addition of IsoWhey Sports is a fantastic result and will only strengthen the program.”
Other new sponsors for 2016 will include Australian sports clothing company Scody who will provide the team with all race, training and casual clothing. “Scody have a long history in supporting Australian sport. Bernard Schreiber (director) has been following our program from our inception and was really keen to be part of what we do. Scody have gone from strength to strength in the last few years and we’re really excited to be working with them,” said Price.
Airport Toyota completes the additions with the leading dealership supplying the team with Vehicles for 2016. “Airport Toyota already has a history with cycling having supported African Wildlife Safaris in 2015. We appreciate their continued involvement in the sport with us and look forward to their 2016 charity ride and criterium at Essendon Fields. Passionate people are what make this team great, so to have such an incredible list of passionate sponsors both new and existing is very heartening for us.”
