Escape Velocity Signs with Louis Garneau for 2007-2009
Louis Garneau Sports and Escape Velocity have completed a 3-year contract naming Louis Garneau Sports as Escape Velocity's official exclusive supplier of bikes, clothing, eyewear, and helmets.
"Louis Garneau Sports and Escape Velocity were philosophically aligned from the beginning of the sponsorship discussions", said Brian Storey, Vice President of Escape Velocity. "Louis Garneau is a Canadian company providing
high-quality global solutions that are perfect for all of EV's bike, clothing, eyewear and helmet needs. We've been in existence for 17 years, and Escape Velocity is striving to follow an integrated cycling club model that supports junior up to elite riders; Louis Garneau understood our mission from square one."
"Louis Garneau Sports is looking forward to expanding its presence in British Columbia," said Louis Garneau, president and owner of Louis Garneau Sports Inc. "Partnering with Escape Velocity does not only allow us to extend our brand into the West, but also, allows us to give back to a community of cyclists that is growing the sport of cycling in British Columbia."
In 2006, Escape Velocity ran 29 races, fielded a junior development team (dEVo) and supported riders from category 5 to 1 with a senior men's team competing at all the BC Superweek and other BC Cup races. For 2007, Escape Velocity is planning on expanding its junior development program (dEVo), expanding its category I, II men's team, and inaugurating a women's development project (dEVas).
