Torpedo7 backs New Zealand's mountain bike World Championships team

Torpedo7 is proud to be named the sponsor for the UCI Mountain Bike World Championship team for the next two years.

Torpedo7 Chief Executive Officer Simon West says supporting the team named for the world championships was a natural fit for the brand and is the next evolution in growing their presence in the vibrant sport of mountain bike in New Zealand.

"Torpedo7 was the naming sponsor for this year’s Mountain Bike National Championships and we’re stoked to now be behind the team representing New Zealand on the world stage for the next two years.

"Through our partnership with Cycling New Zealand, we get to celebrate achievement at the pinnacle of the sport, and also to connect with like-minded enthusiasts across the country as we equip them with everything they need for their outdoor adventure.

"New Zealand is fortunate to have some epic mountain biking trails right on our doorstep, and it's great to see the sport continue to grow in popularity every year and see more and more people out there."

Cycling New Zealand's HP Director, Martin Barras, acknowledges the vital role sponsors play for those individuals representing New Zealand at the highest level.

"Having the support of a reputable organisation such as Torpedo7 provides us the opportunity to field a quality team to represent New Zealand in the hope that these riders inspire the next generation and grow awareness of mountain biking as an elite level sport. Our aim is to encourage more people to the competition pathway every year, thus building a broader base for future international team selections.

"Torpedo7 is already synonymous with mountain bike in New Zealand as the naming sponsor for the national championships, so this further extends their support, allowing Cycling New Zealand and Mountain Bike New Zealand to provide better opportunities to fly the New Zealand flag internationally and grow mountain biking popularity."

The 2021 World MTB National Championship will be held in Vale di Sole, Italy, on 25-29 August 2021 and marks the first time that the new world champions will be crowned in six disciplines.
