SRAM and Velocio Apparel will serve as title sponsors of the women’s pro-cycling team Velocio Sports in 2015, the team announced.
Were very excited to continue this program, explained team owner, Kristy Scrymgeour. A combination of cycling industry partners, grassroots contributors from our Project X crowdfunding campaign, and private donors has allowed us to return this racing year with ten athletes, seven of them veterans of our program.

The goals are very simple, continued Scrymgeour, we are driven to win races, to help develop womens professional cycling and to represent our sponsors on cyclings biggest stage. SRAM has been a huge supporter of the team since we started working together three years ago and were honored to have them step up their support this year. Were excited to be growing our collaboration with a great brand that supports womens cycling.
Alex Wassman, SRAMs Sponsorship Director echoed Velocios success as a program.
