Matrix Fitness/Prendas Ciclismo

As reported earlier on "E D" local firm Prendas Ciclismo will once again co-sponsoring the Horizon Fitness Road Team in 2012.

"Patrons" at Prendas, Mick Tarrant & Andy Storey are first and foremost, cycling fans and Prendas Ciclismo has a proud tradition of supporting Cycling Teams and Individual riders.

Mick had this to say:
"Prendas Ciclismo are happy to announce a further collaboration with Horizon Fitness RT for 2012. The team will slim down to 8 riders including 3 new additions. Notable absentee will be Sarah Storey as her focus will be Paralympic based for next season. Sorry to see such a high profile athlete depart but Dani King and Jo Rowsell, both Olympic medal prospects will stay.

Our involvement with the team commenced in 2010 with an accessory only package for the team but we stepped to full clothing sponsor in conjunction with Santini for 2011. The team performed way beyond expectations last season and did us proud. They send out a very positive message to women (and men for that matter) wishing to get started in competetive cycling.

This past season saw the team punch way above their weight, mixing it with the elite level women racers in various continental stage races. DS Stef Wyman (husband and just about everything else to to our top Cyclo Cross woman Helen Wyman) has performed wonders on a limited budget practically single handed. The girls on the team for 2011 made huge advances throughout the season and will put that experience to good use in 2012".

In addition, they looked great. Check out this little video clip which encapsulates the season nicely.(CLICK ON HORIZON JERSEY ON RIGHT).

The team will be racing under the new name of Matrix Fitness/Prendas Ciclismo
