They are fully committed to a number of cycling events including their iconic London Bikeathon and a new London to Paris ride in 2013 so the association with a professional cycling team makes a great fit’’ said Becky Frewing, IG Sigma Sport General Manager.
Geoff Thomas said: “National interest in the sport has never been higher, so this is the ideal time for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research to be partnering with a successful and ambitious cycling team. Working with IG Sigma Sport will help us build on our cycling heritage and provide huge opportunities to raise our profile and help us beat blood cancer’’.
