October 08, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – RealDealRacing has been growing steadily over the past few years and had a break-out season in 2012 with the team boasting the Ontario Road Cup champion title, two provincial champions on the track, plus having four different riders win at the elite level.
We also fielded a first-year women’s team that dominated from the get-go. With multiple wins plus podium results every weekend all season long RealDealRacing established itself as the strongest women’s cycling team in Ontario. This did not come easily or happen over night. This took a ton of sacrifice and complete dedication to excellence as a “team”. This is something we built and want to see grow in 2013.
We this being said it is with regret that after many successful seasons together we would like to announce that unfortunately the partnership with LaBicicletta will not continue. This is something we never envisioned happening but to accomplish everything we want in life and in sport we feel the need to follow a different path.
We really want to thank Heath Cockburn and Henry Erlichman at LaBicicletta and all of their staff for so many excellent years together and also to thank all of the excellent people we have come in contact with and worked with over that time period.
Thanks as well to all of the sponsors for your generous support and for giving us and our business the opportunity to grow and develop. Most of all thank you for taking a chance on us and enjoying our growth as people, coaches and bike racers. Our time with LaBicicletta will never be forgotten as it was truly enjoyed. We wish you all the very best!
