Land Rover Gear is sponsoring Milton Keynes-based cyclists Team Synergy and providing them with specialist clothing as they get set for the Saab Salomon Mountain Mayhem event.
Team Synergy is wearing pre- and post-race clothing by Land Rover Gear and the company has been working closely with both the road and mountain bike sections of the team to get the right combination of practicality and style. The resulting designs utilise high tech fabrics including the latest pile inner layers and breathable shell garments.
Team Synergy is an amateur cycling team, based in Milton Keynes and has been enjoying increasing competitive success in both road and mountain bike events in the UK and in Europe. The support from Land Rover Gear is part of the company's continuing support for all aspects of British sport. Team Synergy's Graeme Freestone King said: 'Land Rover Gear's support for the team is absolutely vital for us, and the performance driven clothing has proved to be a hit with our riders and spectators alike.'
The team competing in the Saab Salomon Mountain Mayhem consists of James Burton from Badby, Phil Hughes from Redditch, Clive Rhodes from Aylesbury and Andy Smallwood from Birmingham. The gruelling 24-hour event, taking place at Sandwell Park Farm places great demands on the riders but Team Synergy are not deterred. Phil Hughes, Team Synergy's mountain bike leader is confident: 'Following last year's performance, we're looking for a podium place in the 2003 event.'
Whatever your sport there's some Land Rover Gear to suit you. The extensive range covers a wide variety of inner and outer garments that will increase the enjoyment of any leisure activity - whatever your age or ability. There's even a selection of teddy bears to snuggle up to after a hard day's activity and a variety of bags to carry it all in. Land Rover Gear is available from Land Rover dealers throughout the UK and at specialist Land Rover Gear shops at Bluewater and - appropriately at Xscape, Milton Keynes. Prices for Land Rover Gear clothing ranges from £5 for a child's Snow Hat to £249 for a technical Snow Jacket.Published 19 June 2003
