To mark its fourth year in business Algoma Bicycle Company, located at 360 Queen Street East, is pleased to introduce its first racing team. Team Algoma Bicycle Company has begun its inaugural year strongly with over 13 riders. This Ontario Cycling Association licensed team will compete in road, mountain, triathlon and cyclocross races throughout Ontario and Michigan.
All of the team members are licensed with the Union Cycliste Internationale (a.k.a. the UCI) and are proud to be longstanding members of the Sault Cycling Club.
Team Algoma Bicycle Company aims to increase participation and interest in all forms of cycling within the Algoma area. Leading by example, the members of the team share the objective of promoting an activity that they see as a fun part of a healthier, greener, lifestyle for our community. The team aims to take advantage of the natural beauty of Sault Ste. Marie and to demonstrate to the rest of Ontario and Michigan what a truly perfect location we have for all forms of riding. We hope that through our representation at races, such as the three out-of-town races we participated in our first weekend of the season, the team will create enough enthusiasm for the sport to enable the Soo to be a successful host of an O-Cup race.
Algoma Bicycle Company decided to sponsor a team with the goal that the team environment would create competitive, organized training rides and greater access to races for local athletes. It is the hope of Algoma Bicycle Company, and the race team that this cohesive team environment will allow the riders to improve their level of training and racing, individually and as part of a team.
