After 20 years of success on the world stage, Cycling Australia and bike manufacturer BT are announcing the end of their partnership.
Steve Drake, CEO, Cycling Australia: “There’s a lot to be proud of on both sides. It’s a partnership that has spanned five Olympiads, five Commonwealth Games and 20 World Championships. Many riders have raced their entire careers on a BT bike. A casual glance at the names of riders aboard a BT over the journey is a who’s who of Australian track racing. I’d like to personally thank BT for their efforts and development over the many years of this partnership.”
For Sydney 2000 Olympian Scott McGrory, the BT partnership was just in its early days when he and riding partner Brett Aitken produced the ultimate reward; a gold medal in front of a home crowd.
Scott McGrory: “At the Sydney Olympic Games, Brett Aitken and I had the confidence of knowing we had the best bikes on the velodrome. After the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, we were fortunate to have been gifted our gold medal winning BT's that in my mind sit along with the medals themselves as a symbol of our greatest success.”
