Argon 18, a leading manufacturer in the UCI ProTour, today announced a multiyear agreement with Triathlon BC, the provincial sport governing for multisport in British Columbia.
“This new partnership continues Argon 18’s on-going dedication to the sport of triathlon. Already well established in Eastern Canada, the company is focused on establishing the Argon 18 brand to become the industry leader in triathlon bikes across Canada, said Mathieu Fleury, Sales Director of Argon Canada. “It is our intent to help power the next generation of athletes throughout the development pathway, whether they are the next Olympic hopeful, or simply chasing a finish in their first event, we believe Argon 18 can surpass the athlete’s expectations of what a bike can be.”
As part of the two-year agreement, the Canadian brand will support provincially identified high performance athletes, and will also provide overall SuperSeries prizing, including four top end bicycles to the 2018 and 2019 Junior Male and Female Series Champions.
Being a passionate cyclist and former racer, I value thoughtful design and careful execution to detail. Argon 18’s entire line instills confidence in an athlete, which ultimately leads to peak performance. I can’t be happier partnering with Argon 18, proclaimed Allan Prazsky, Executive Director, Triathlon BC. “Their support of our developing athletes is a shot in the arm. I look forward to working with Argon 18 over the next two years.”
Triathlon BC’s four event SuperSeries is a provincial development, draft legal Series with a focus on developing speed and technical skill required for international-caliber racing.
