Twelve months after the team was launched, Trek Fondo is back and ready to tackle another year of racing, riding and connecting with Melbourne’s cycling community.
We’re thrilled to unveil a fresh new kit design; announce two new partners; welcome back our existing partners; and formally introduce three new members to the team.
New for 2016, we have joined forces with RACV to help promote cycling to Melbourne’s motoring community. The partnership will see the team host regular rides, including a monthly adventure from their Healesville Resort. We also welcome Coffey Ford, a Dandenong-based Ford dealer which will assist the team with vehicles for key races in regional Victoria.
Fondo will continue to deck the team out in lycra, Trek and Bontrager return as our bike and cycling accessory suppliers, and Melbourne Cycling League continue as our official club (you can catch the team in action at their many events throughout the year, from cyclocross to car park criteriums).
To mark the occasion, we hosted a bunch ride with Melbourne Cycling League on Saturday. We were joined by MCL members and friends-of-Trek Fondo for a cruise along Williamstown and Altona beach, before stopping for the obligatory post-ride coffee in Docklands. Thank you to everyone who joined us.
Earlier this year we bid farewell to our ‘Hammer’, Seda, but introduced three new members to the team: Kristi Darby, Siobhan Luck and Anna Stott.
Meet the team: Brooke Anderson, Kristi Darby, Niki Hobday, Bridget Lester, Siobhan Luck, Karla McKinnon, Jo O’Shaughnessey, Hazel Porter, Anna Stott and Anna Thomson.
We can’t wait to see what the next twelve months will bring…
