After recently announcing partnerships with cycling jersey producer Castelli and nutrition brand Optimum Nutrition, Human Race has now joined with bike mechanics VONCRANK and PedalSure insurance.
VONCRANK connects riders to a mobile bike mechanic via an app. As part of the partnership with Human Race, VONCRANK will be providing mechanical support on all cycling and triathlon events, ensuring that cyclists make it through the technical parts of the course and across the finish line.
Comprehensive cyclist and bicycle insurance company PedalSure covers all types of bikes and riding, including amateur racing and commuting. The new partnership with Human Race will offer the potential for riders to be fully covered as they take on events including the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales and Royal Windsor Triathlon.
“We have a busy season of events lined up across our cycling, running and triathlon portfolio, so it’s essential that we have quality partners on board who are experts in their field,” said Human Race CEO Nick Rusling. “After successfully signing agreements with Optimum, Soreen and Castelli at the end of 2017, we’re delighted to be kicking off the New Year in such a positive fashion by partnering with VONCRANK and PedalSure. They are instrumental in making sure everyone can have peace of mind around maintaining and insuring one of their most prized possessions – their bikes.”
“It’s great that Human Race have seen the synergies between our two businesses, and as a young tech start-up we are delighted to be partnering with such a fantastic and established company for 2018,” added VONCRANK’S Liam O’Brien. “We aim to use technology to save cyclists time by providing top notch repairs and servicing at the click of a button, so riders can spend more time in the saddle doing what they love.”
"PedalSure is proud to be the official cycling and triathlon insurance partner of Human Race in 2018," concluded Pedalsure CEO Philip Lochner. ""According to UK crime statistics 376,000 were stolen in the UK in 2016. PedalSure will cover your bike from theft, as well as any accidental damage caused in training, or at an event, and we also offer unrivalled levels of personal cover for riders as well."
