Drapac Professional Cycling only recently became Australia’s only Pro-Continental team. With this, they earned themselves a wildcard entry into the 2014 Santos Tour Down Under and have been consistently aggressive in getting into breakaways.

We caught up with Jonathon Cantwell, one of Drapac’s new sprint recruits coming from team Saxo-Tinkoff. He spoke to us about his commitment to the team and further association with Swift Carbon in Australia.

Cantwell is the Australian agent for Swift, and so his business success is closely tied with his teams racing successes. Swift sell through concept stores and Cantwell has ambitious plans to expand across Australia. His first store is just weeks away from opening, just opposite of the popular St Kilda Beach, Melbourne.

We’ve previously taken a look behind the scenes of Swift Carbon; it’s a global company with the owner based just an hour away from the place of manufacture. For Swift, the signing of Drapac signals a move into the pro ranks and a chance to greatly grow awareness.
