WHAT WE DO
We create and manage professional relationships in professional cycling for teams, companies but above all for talented athletes. We facilitate every aspect of these connections for stakeholders who are as serious about their business as we are.
Creating solid relationships means understanding everyone involved. We know how athletes add value to teams and we know how to connect teams with the right athletes. We will help you to maximise the potential of these relationships by providing guidance and support based on our wealth of experience and extensive network of contacts within the cycling world.
In short: We identify the most awesome talent in cycling and help them become even more awesome by creating the optimal environment they can thrive in to have a longterm career!
At the heart of our agency are the riders. We've known most of them since their junior or U23 days and helped them grow their careers on and off the bike. Joining the agency as a client means more than just a business relationship to us. These kids are family to us.
