Kilkenny-Based Firm Steps Up to Supply Ireland’s Top Stage Race
Rás na mBan international cycle race has teamed up with top clothing manufacturer VeloRevolution for classification jerseys in this year’s running of the event.
Riders in the 13th edition of Ireland’s top international stage race for women will be competing for classification jerseys supplied by VeloRevolution, the Kilkenny firm which supplies jerseys to races, events, clubs and associations throughout Ireland and beyond.
The Italian-made garments from VeloRevolution have won an enviable reputation for quality and style in recent years and will be worn by the leading competitors in the 2018 edition of the event which was won last year by Olympic Champion Elinor Barker.
There are six separate classification jerseys in Rás na mBan and in consultation with VeloRevolution designers, they carry the design theme from the Magenta Jersey for the overall race leader through the Irish Dairy The Complete Natural Points Classification, the Wicklow 200 Queen of the Mountains, the WomensCycling.ie Best Young Rider, the Kilkenny CC Best Irish Rider and the All American Launderette Stage Winner’s jersey.
Commenting on the new partnership VeloRevolution CEO Aidan Crowley said: “I’ve been watching with great interest the growth of Rás na mBan in recent years and I’m delighted that the opportunity has presented itself to associate with one of the best and most important bike races in these islands.
“This is the ideal platform for us to display the design and manufacturing quality of VeloRevolution products to bike fans at home and abroad. We’ve produced a design template that embraces the design philosophy of both Rás na mBan and VeloRevolution.
“We’ve produced a range of designs for the various categories and we look forward to presenting jerseys, skinsuits and caps to top international bike riders in Kilkenny in September.”
In welcoming VeloRevolution to the Rás na mBan community, Race Director Valerie Considine said: “We’re delighted to partner with Aidan and VeloRevolution for what is one of the most important visual elements of our race.
“The quality and style of VeloRevolution products is of the highest order and it’s particularly heartwarming that we have been able to associate with a Kilkenny-based company for our event which is centred on the marble city for a third consecutive year.”
NOTE: VeloRevolution is Ireland’s premium and affordable ‘quality’ custom cycling, triathlon and leisure event clothing supplier. The company is managed by former Masters National Road Race Champion Aidan Crowley, one of Ireland’s top domestic road race cyclists of his generation.
