The Symmetrics Cycling team has announced that Canadian bike maker Norco has renewed and increased its support of the team for 2006. As well as Norco Team Carbon CRR road frames and forks, and Diabolique TT frames and forks, Norco will also supply race technician support at selected high level Canadian events and is also providing what the team describes as "a considerable financial contribution."
"Norco is very excited to return for our fourth season as a title bike sponsor and partner with Canada's premier road team," said Peter Stace-Smith, Norco's PR/marketing manager. "In the past, Norco has been regarded as primarily a mountain bike company, but through our support of the team we've been able to showcase our world class road bikes as well. Symmetrics is quickly becoming one of North America's top pro teams and we are proud to be a part of their success."
Shimano will supply components and wheels for the team, as well as pedals and shoes, while Ritchey is on board with the other components necessary to build a complete bike.
