ONE INDUSTRIES AND THE HELMETS SUPPORT HARO BIKES UK RACE TEAM
Haro are pleased to announce that ONE Industries and THE will be their official apparel and helmet sponsors for the 2012 race season. ONE Industries will be supplying the team with race pants, gloves and casual wear. BMX specific helmets will be provided by THE.
Duncan Briggs, Marketing Manager for ONE Industries Europe says “When the possibility of teaming up with the Haro BMX team was presented to us we saw the perfect opportunity to promote our race wear in another sector of the bike market. Working with top level racers from Moto X/MTB and now BMX enables us to tap into the riders experience on the race track and gives us an invaluable insight into what today’s rider demands from there gear.”
THE are committed to developing the best and most innovative products in the industry. They listen to enthusiasts everywhere, and work very hard with the world’s top pros to develop and test new ideas. This effort allows them to deliver fresh new products that fill the need and bridge the gap left by the rest of the industry.
The impressive line-up includes Grant Hill (Elite Men), who came 3rd in the 2011 National BMX rankings and Dan Pullen (Junior Men), both on British Cycling’s Talent Team. The 2012 team has riders across many categories, but has been reduced in size to be able to focus more on each rider and to support the Elite athlete’s at a higher level. Imogen Hill races in 9-10 girls and an Irish rider, Alex Holiday in 17-24 men. They also have Ryan Yearsley, Mario Presi and Phil Beer racing in Masters, 45+ and cruiser categories.
The Haro team will be racing the BMX National Series and the BMX World Championships. Other sponsors include Kenda tyres, KMC chains, Alienation, Jagwire cables and CLiQ components.
