Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ADELAIDE, Australia - Jan 17, 2017 - The world’s premier cycling tour operator, Mummu Cycling and the most decorated cyclist in Australia, Stuart O’Grady OAM have announced a new partnership offering fans the exclusive opportunity to experience cycling’s biggest races side by side with the former champion.
The two-time World Champion on the track, four-time Olympic medallist (GOLD 2004), 2007 Paris-Roubaix winner and two-time Tour Down Under winner has partnered with Mummu Cycling to take their world class tours to another level of exclusivity.
Mummu Cycling Chief Executive Officer, Marcel Berger said the partnership will bring fans into the inner sanctum of the cycling world.
“The access Stuart will be able to provide for cycling fans through our tours is unprecedented. As a former winner of Paris-Roubaix, our clients will now have access to the famous showers, meet cycling royalty and access teams. We’re really excited to have him on board and even more thrilled with what it means for our clients,” Berger said.
“Not only will our tours help cycling fans tick the world’s biggest cycling races off their bucket list but they’ll now be able to experience them alongside the most decorated Australian cyclist of all time.”
On the eve of the ten-year anniversary of his Paris-Roubaix win, cycling legend Stuart O’Grady said he was thrilled to join Mummu Cycling.
“Cycling has been my entire life so getting the opportunity to share my experiences, knowledge and behind the scenes access from my twenty-year career is something I’m really excited about,” O’Grady said.
“They’re also guided tours so I get the opportunity to sit around after the day’s rides with the group to chat about the day, how the race is evolving and what to watch out for but more importantly, having been on the circuit for twenty years I can also share my local knowledge outside of cycling.”
Mummu Cycling and Stuart O’Grady will kick off their partnership in March with their Spring Classics Tour where O’Grady will host cycling fans on an eleven-day tour through Belgium and Northern France. Cycling fans will have access to ride the course of famous races including Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders together with O’Grady in what will be the most exclusive tour on offer.
