Symmetrics Adds New Sponsor
The Symmetrics Cycling team is proud to announce that the Canadian airline WestJet joins the team as a sponsor. The good news is part of a stream of recent developments for Canada's top pro team following a successful spring season with wins all over the Americas, and top results worldwide.
"The Symmetrics Cycling team travels weekly to various destinations in North America and around the world." according toKevin Cunningham, co-owner of the Symmetrics Cycling team. "Just these past few months, we've been to El Salvador, Brazil, Mexico, California, Australia, and across Canada for various races and sponsorship commitments. The travel fees are what take a good portion of our budget each year. With WestJet's commitment, it means more race exposure for Symmetrics riders and sponsor companies. Having WestJet aboard is one more step to our long-term commitment to the development of Canadian cyclists."
