Café goes for puns, and cycle teams
A new women's cycling team is firing, with its sponsorship from national steakhouse chain.
Hog's Breath Café has thrown its weight behind the Tineli women's race team, training under Australian cycling coach, Kurt Polock. The team will compete in the 2016 Subaru National Road Series.
The team includes champion ironwoman Hayley Bateup, elite road cyclists Lauren Kitchen and Deborah Hennessey, and young hotshots Jena Grimsey, Sarah Mills, and Laura Renshaw.
Hog's Breath General Manager, Ross Worth, says the Aussie steakhouse chain, with 80 locations in Australia and NZ, promotes an active lifestyle and is on the lookout for sports, teams, and community events to support.
Team members donned their new Lycra and tackled their first elite women's race of 2016, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, last weekend, comingin sixth overall and Lauren Kitchen finished with an individual fifth place in a field of 135.
The Cadel Evans race has UCI status, making it part of the World Tour for professional female cyclists, and points from the race go towards selection for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
