Cycle trade celebrates awards successes – on Twitter

The industry has been toasting its successes at the first live BikeBiz Awards, held last night at the Cycle Show, Earls Court.

The tech-savvy cycling industry has been using Twitter to convey congratulations to the winners of the Awards.

John Herety, manager of Rapha Condor Continental Cycling Team, tweeted: “Well done to everyone @condorcycles, BikeBiz awards winners Best independent Retailer. That’s 2 in a row for Grant and his very special team.”

Condor Cycles itself celebrated the awards while cunningly advertising its stand at the show, via @Konrad Manning: “We @condorcycles, are BikeBiz award winners: Best independent Retailer (for second year running) Mr Contador will be on our stand on Friday.”

BikeRadar tweeted about picking up its Consumer Website Award – which it won for the second year in a row – while Consumer Magazine winner Singletrack wrote: “Voted best magazine 2009 by the bike industry. Spread the word. We rock!”

Charge took the time to tweet in the build up to the awards too: “On my way to The Cycle Show in London. Bike Biz awards tonight – Charge is in the finalists for "manufacturer of the year", fingers crossed.”

Charge did of course go on to win the Manufacturer prize on the night. For a full list of the winners, click here.
