The Swift Racing Team is looking for a new title sponsor for 2009 after its current title sponsor is withdrawing due to hard times.
"I understand their situation. I worked in business myself before coming into team management and I know what they are going through," said Team Manager Stefan Wyman. "They have been nothing but supportive of us throughout their sponsorship and without their belief we wouldn't have achieved so much this season. It's not going to be easy to replace them, but I'm determined to give it 100% to try to keep this team running.
"I've run this team for five years and don't want this to end now. We had huge plans for 2009, with strong riders ready to join us. I really felt that 2009 was the year we could start to challenge for major honours."
The team took 21 wins, in road and cyclo-cross, with the most recent at the Gabby Day, the first National Cup cyclo-cross races in the United Kingdom.
"I've told my riders the situation, and I hope to be able to bring them some more positive news in the very near future. We are in talks with several interest parties and are keen to hear from anyone else that may be interested in getting involved with the team."
Wyman can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com.
