Stage 17 Racing is proud to announce a new sponsorship deal with Irvine-based Cylance, Inc., a cyber security products and services company dedicated to solving large and complex security challenges, for the remainder of the 2013 season. Cylance joins the Stage 17 Racing family as the team takes part in its second Redlands Bicycle Classic where the team has debuted its new 2013 kits made by Pactimo. Stage 17-Cylance remains focused on fostering clean, mature athletes prepared to become the next crop of elite American cycling professionals.
“We are proud to bring a new company like Cylance to national level racing through the partnership with our team,” said Michael Roecklein, Director Sportif, Stage 17-Cylance. “Cylance has a number of dedicated cyclists so they understand the hard work and dedication that’s built into competing at this level. Support from Cylance and the rest of our sponsors is critical to a growing development team and we truly couldn’t do it without them.”
It has been an exciting first part of the season for Stage 17-Cylance. In addition to partnering with Cylance, the development squad has upgraded two of its riders (Tosh Clements and Ian Moore) to category one after a successful San Dimas Stage Race, received invites to Redlands Bicycle Classic and Tour of the Gila and added additional firepower in former SpiderTech rider Flavio de Luna.
“The cycling world is evolving to a new breed of rider,” said Greg Fitzgerald, Chief Marketing Officer, Cylance. “So too is the evolution of those protecting the cyber security world with computers and networks. Stage 17 represents the same passion and dedication to excellence that fuels Cylance, We’re pleased to partner with Stage 17 as they develop world-class talent on the National stage.”
Stage 17-Cylance entered the Redlands Bicycle Classic on Thursday with a wide range of talent. Rudy Napolitano, team consultant and current US National 35+ Road Race Champion, joins Rene Corella, former U23 Mexican National champion, and new comer de Luna, formerly with SpiderTech. Making their Redlands Bicycle Classic debuts, Gera Medina, Ian Moore and Tosh Clements look to make some noise in the amateur competition while Daniel Harm, assistant team director and Daniel Katz, will use their experience from last year’s race to make an impact.
