Partnerships

Our Goal

Work closely with likeminded sponsors and partners to give value to both the team and the partners.

Work to build these relationships as the team trains, competes and builds its brand.

Strategy

Potential team members have been chosen from riders with a proven competitive track record and that show values critical to the team’s goal of being role models to younger riders.

Several of the team’s riders have been identified by Cycling NZ as potential future stars in the sport who could go on to become World, Commonwealth or Olympic champions.

With an ever increasing focus on equality with women in sport and with the attitudes towards women changing in the UCI we see Women’s cycling as an untapped marketing potential for partners. Early adopters will reap the benefits as the media focus more on women in sport.

As part of rider education we will provide our riders with education on how best to provide real and tangible value to their sponsors.

We will be actively marketing the team and the sponsors / partners using team kit, print media, social media, web site and award ceremonies.

We are committed to providing a tangible return to our partners and identifying ways we can connect with each of our partner’s client bases and target audiences.
