Brother UK has announced it is to sponsor Team OnForm, winners of the 2017 UK Women’s Team Series, into the 2018 season.
The team of elite male and female cyclists has enjoyed a successful year of 65 wins including finishing first at the UCI Tour of Cambridge.
Team OnForm will enjoy jersey sponsorship from Brother UK throughout the 2018 season, competing at high profile national events including the Tour Series in May.
Speaking about the new team sponsorship, Phil Jones MBE, Managing Director of Brother UK, comments: “I’ve been hugely impressed by the performance of Team OnForm this year – they are a team going places.
“What stands out in particular is that Team OnForm are an ambitious unit, and their approach to the sport fits exactly with what Brother UK is all about – delivering results, partnership and teamwork.”
Simon Howes, team manager of Team OnForm, added: “It’s fantastic to have Brother UK on board as our sponsor for next season. They are a heavyweight brand who has already invested a significant amount in elite cycling in the UK, and we will benefit greatly as a team thanks to their involvement.”
Brother UK has invested in the cycling sector for more than six years with the provision of neutral service vehicles to high-level domestic races and sportives. It is also the official print, imaging and results partner for the Tour Series, the OVO Energy Women’s Tour of Britain and the OVO Energy Tour of Britain.
Ahead of next season, Team OnForm has recruited experienced rider Mel Brand, who since 2013 has raced competitively for major teams including MG Maxifuel, Epic Scott, Ikon-Mazda and Ford/Ecoboost, alongside Lauren Murphy, current 2017 Junior National Road Race Champion.
