Hitachi Races to the Top
Over the past years, Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) has sponsored the HITracing Development Team, which has achieved great success in some of Australia’s largest national cycling events.
HITracing Manager, Robert Godson, said the aim of the HITracing team is to support and mentor young riders, providing them with a pathway in a sport which continues to grow at a significant rate in Australia.
“Now in its eighth season, the continued support we have received from HCA has helped produce professional cyclists, some of which are riding in European-based teams and major Australian cycling teams,” he said.
“We have seen riders win on the road as well as on the Velodrome and mountain bikes, whilst balancing challenging work and education commitments. A number of riders have won major Australian stage races and have also claimed gold medals and podium finishes across various state-wide championships,” said Rob.
The HITracing Development Team encourages riders to place their education as first priority followed by sport. It focuses on developing riders for the future and providing them with the tools required to pursue success in the sport of cycling.
HCA is proud to have contributed to fostering a positive culture and environment that has facilitated the growth of sporting talent among young cyclists. HCA wishes the dedicated team of cyclists a successful 2013 season.
