Romero heads up Orbea-For Goodness Shakes! women's team


Orbea-For Goodness Shakes! unveiled their 2010 Men’s and Women’s Squads at Redbridge Cycling Centre, including a new addition to the team with Individual Pursuit Gold Medallist Rebecca Romero MBE.


A first for a UK-based team, Orbea-For Goodness Shakes! is excited to be supporting both a Men’s and a Women’s Squad in 2010, a commitment that sets them apart from other domestic teams. With Olympic Champions, World Champions, experienced riders and young up and coming athletes, Orbea-For Goodness Shakes! is looking to the future and aiming for the very top.


With Olympic Gold Medallist Rebecca Romero MBE heading the Women’s Squad alongside Multiple National and World Masters Champion Janet Birkmyre, Cassie Gledhill, Caroline Wojcik-Gammell and Emilie Fisher, there is a wealth of talent and experience designed to deliver results on the road, in time trials and on the track.

Renny Stirling, head of Orbea UK, is very positive about the launch of both of the squads, “To be able to launch both a Men’s and Women’s Squad for 2010 is fantastic and a natural progression for Orbea-For Goodness Shakes!


“Women’s racing has faced some difficult times of late and Orbea wanted to show that we are backing Women’s racing and are proud to be supporting some of the finest Women athletes in the country.”


Orbea are proud to announce that Rebecca has joined forces with them as part of Orbea’s “I‘m Gold” exclusive and unique squad of Olympic Champions alongside Samuel Sanchez (Road Race Gold Medal) and Julien Absalon (MTB Gold Medal) and will ride with Orbea-For Goodness Shakes! as she focuses first on the World Time Trial Championships in Melbourne in September and ultimately the Olympic title in London 2012.


“Orbea are very fortunate to have Rebecca Romero connected with our “I‘m Gold” campaign alongside Samuel Sanchez and Julien Absalon. Rebecca is a remarkable athlete and has long since proven how adaptable she is, and Orbea will be doing all we can to support her in her quest for Gold Medals in the Worlds and Olympics during the next years,” added Stirling.


Jodie Shann, Athlete Sponsorship Manager at For Goodness Shakes! is looking forward to seeing the team in action in 2010, “Cycling has always been at the heart of For Goodness Shakes, and after sponsoring Olympic Gold medallist Bradley Wiggins in 2008, we are now extremely excited about taking this to the next level, with the addition of two top cycling squads. Both the men’s and women’s teams carry the same ethos as our brand, and we are looking forward to seeing them both challenging for honours in some of the UK's most prestigious cycle races.”
