WANT TO BE PART OF THE ‘TEAM’ IN 2018?
From G2I and Warrnambool to the recent Tour of Tassie, 2017 has been a year filled with some fantastic highlights for AMR Renault Racing. As one NRS season draws to a close, the planning for 2018 is already well advanced. We’re thrilled to be welcoming back the nucleus of both our riding and supporter ranks. But as always there’s room for more, especially corporate and/or personal sponsors who share the same passion we do – to nurture up and coming riders and provide the opportunities and framework they need to make that next big step in the Elite ranks. We’ve been doing it for the past 5 seasons now, continually punching way above our weight, and we’re looking forward to doing it once again in 2018.
True, 2016 may still have few races left in it yet, including the upcoming Tour of Bright. But we’re excited to say the 2017 season is already shaping as the biggest and best in the five-year history of AMR Renault Racing with several important pieces now firmly in place.
Luigi and the team at AMR Renault have been long-term supporters and we’re thrilled to have them back in 2017, ensuring we’ll continue to have the best team cars in the NRS convoy for a third successive season.
Australia’s #1 online cycling retailer, Pushys, are pumped to be returning for a second season and will once again play a significant role in backing the team with bikes, gear and service support during 2017.
Our affiliate CA club since day one, Lidcombe-Auburn Cycling Club, are back and together we’re looking to create even stronger links in 2017 and beyond, both with the LACC juniors (who are flying right now, just quietly!) and the wider Club member base.
“Since the team began back in 2012 we’ve never been in such an advanced position at this stage of the off-season.” Team Director Russell Menzies.
“It’s a testament to the riders and what they’ve been able to achieve, but also to the commitment and passion of our sponsors. They’re just as excited about the path we’re on right now as we are ourselves. Just as it is with cycling teams at every level of the sport globally, their support is just so important. They make it all possible each season, and we’re hugely grateful for everything they do. We can’t wait to repay their faith in 2017.”
While the details are still being finalised, the bulk of the Team’s other 2016 sponsors also look set to return, which is clearly more great news. Watch this space…and watch this team!
We’re delighted to announce AMR Renault will continue its association with the team for a second year, after reaffirming its commitment for the 2016 road racing season, including the National Road Series.
“The team has had a fantastic year in 2015 with AMR Renault on board,” said a delighted Team Director, Russell Menzies. “We’ve made huge strides in the past 12 months as a squad and are on the cusp of even bigger things next season. The continued commitment from Luigi and the team at AMR Renault is a hugely important part of achieving that. The team cars have been superb and even better the guys also love their cycling – and rest assured we love them too!”
As was the case for the 2015 season – when the team received the keys to a bespoke Renault Megane wagon and Trafic commercial van, a key part of the 2016 AMR Renault sponsorship will again include the provision of official team vehicles – a vital contribution given the very nature of the NRS involves vast amounts of time on the road each season.
According to Menzies, beyond AMR Renault’s continued sponsorship a series of new partners will be announced for 2016 in the coming weeks.
“Success breeds success, no question,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of interest following our results this season, especially in the second half of the year, both from potential sponsors, suppliers and riders. The quality of contacts has been sky high too, which is always a nice position to be in. As things are finalised we’ll be releasing the news, so stay tuned!”
AMR Renault is based at Haberfield in Sydney’s inner west.
