Best thing on two wheels: Fleetwood RV sponsors Hincapie cycling team
Fleetwood RV has joined the Hincapie Sportswear Development Cycling Team as an official vehicle partner for the 2014 season. Founded by legendary rider George Hincapie, the team consistently graduates members to the professional ranks of cycling. The only rider in history to represent the U.S. in five Olympic Games, Hincapie also participated on eight Tour de France-winning teams.
The team’s official vehicle will be a 2014 Discovery 40G with special, eye-catching exterior graphics designed specifically for the Hincapie Team. The motorhome will serve as the team’s mobile office and living quarters during the 2014 racing season and will tow a matching trailer that will transport bicycles and team equipment.
Kicking off the race season, the team will ride in the Greenville Spring Training Series in Greenville, South Carolina, February 16 – 23, where the Fleetwood Discovery will be officially unveiled. In addition to providing the official vehicle for the 2014 season, Fleetwood will also have a presence at many of the races throughout the year.
“We’re very excited to sponsor the Hincapie team and such a high-caliber group of cyclists,” stated John Draheim, President and CEO of Fleetwood RV. “Many of us at Fleetwood are avid cyclists, so this is a great opportunity and perfect fit for our company as we bring the RV experience to the next generation.”
