“Jayco is delighted to become a major partner of Cycling Australia,” said Jayco Managing Director, Gerry Ryan OAM. “Our top young cyclists deserve the opportunity to develop their capabilities and to realise their potential and we hope our support will help them achieve their goals.

“Even though times are a bit tough, sport deserves the support of business in helping to prepare our young athletes for international success,” said Mr Ryan.  Australian Institute of Sport Director, Professor Peter Fricker, says he welcomes Jayco’s investment in the sport.

“It is through additional support from sponsors such as Jayco that we can be sure AIS cyclists are well supported as they compete on the world stage,” said Professor Fricker. “With recent wins by Jack Bobridge and Leigh Howard in the Tour of Japan and a strong performance by our track cyclists at the World Championships in March, 2009 is shaping up as an exciting year for AIS cycling.”
