"I am very pleased to welcome this group of riders to the newly formed Team," said Rider Manager Simon Cordner. "We have supported individual athletes in the past, however this year we are excited to launch a full team, representing CRC on-board our house brand Vitus Bikes. We've selected a great group of riders who we feel can represent Chain Reaction Cycles and the Vitus brand successfully."
After relaunching the iconic Vitus brand back in 2010, Chain Reaction Cycles have developed the range of bikes on offer over the last two years. The full 2012 collection are available to pre-order now and will be in stock later this month.
With a strong heritage in racing during the 1970's and 80's, Vitus had huge success with road racing legend, and now Vitus brand ambassador Sean Kelly. 2012 is the first year the brand will have a full team based here in Ireland.
The team will have the full support of Chain Reaction Cycles keeping the Vitus bikes in top condition throughout the season. We'll be releasing the ChainReactionCycles.com/Vitus full race schedule in the coming weeks, as well as detailed team rider profiles.
