January 21, 2014 – Team H&R Block is pleased to announce the 2014 partners and unveil its jersey and frame for the season. H&R Block Canada is committed to continuing their support in helping grow Canada’s premier elite development cycling team. Serving Canadians for the past 50 years, H&R Block is Canada’s largest retail tax preparation company.
DC Bank has recognized the growth in the team and has committed to increasing their support. DC Bank was founded in 1997 and has grown to be a leader in all their respective industries including, ATMs, Debit Terminals, Prepaid Phone Card and Prepaid Cash Cards.
The team will compete aboard the Norco Tactic LE, a supremely stiff, super high-?modulus carbon race frame that incorporates key Norco technologies: ARC Race stays, Smoothcore, Armorlite, Power Chassis and a Press Fit 30 bottom bracket. Norco Bicycles’ commitment to superior handling and power transfer enables us to compete against some of the best riders in North America and beyond, and all on a bike that was designed and tested in Canada. We’re thrilled that the Tactic is a part of our winning strategy for 2014.
Giordana is providing the team with world-class clothing that once again features the team’s marketing partners. It delivers the technology and performance of authentic Made in Italy apparel, from initial design to final tailoring. This year Giordana will also be the team’s official manufacture of casual wear.
Team H&R Block would like to thank all of their dedicated marketing partners for their continued support. Without their generous support, the team would not be able to travel, compete and race at the highest level.
A special thanks to: H&R Block – Norco Bicycles – DC Bank – Giordana – Stikeman Elliott – Mavic – Rudy Project – Sidi – Curious Communication – SPC – Kenda Tires – Hammer Nutrition – Norco John Henry Bikes – Fizik – Axiom – SRAM – Yakima.
This combined effort has allowed the team to offer Canada’s most talented young riders a race calendar that will begin with Redlands Bicycle Classic, Sea Otter and Tour of the Gila, followed by Tour de Beauce, Canadian Road Nationals, BC Superweek, Cascade Classic & another UCI race to be announced later in the season.
If any company or individual would like to become involved and support the growth of this program and these talented young athletes, please contact Mark Ernsting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
