The race director of the Trust House Cycle Classic, Women’s Tour and Women’s World Cup, Jorge Sandoval, has announced that an agreement with EMC2 bikes has been reached. EMC2 is now "The Official Bike" of the cited bike races in New Zealand, which allows the brand to promote its products by placing logos on jerseys, official cars and at the television interview area.
EMC2 bikes are designed by four times Tour de France rider and internationally recognised road bike designer, New Zealander Eric Mackenzie. "I’ve know Jorge Sandoval for a very long time," said Mackenzie. "We are very happy to be part of his international promotions."
Sandoval, in return, honoured the former pro. "Eric is one of the best riders this country has ever seen and knows the industry inside out, so for us it’s a privilege to have him as one of our sponsors," the race director said. The Trust House tour is on from January 25-29, 2006.
