Team Sixcycle-RK&O Title Sponsor: Sixcycle

Team Sixcycle-RK&O is proud to present Sixcycle as our title sponsor for the 2012 racing season. Sixcycle will be providing the team with individualized performance management plans as well as access to the Sixcycle Training Platform and the Sixcycle Collector mobile application.

From Sixcycle:

Sixcycle is a performance management and technology company providing highly individualized coaching services. Our athletes race for many teams regionally, and span all ability and fitness levels from recreational riders up through the competitive categories. Sixcycle athletes benefit from access to the Sixcycle Training Platform, a web-based and mobile training center of our own design, where they are able to collaborate with their coach on the identification of training goals, the design of training plans, the structure of the workout calendar, the tracking of workout and race results, and the evaluation of training files. Sixcycle's science-based, technology-driven, highly individualized approach is results oriented - just like our athletes.

The Sixcycle Training Platform is designed and built by coaches and athletes, and facilitates many of the tasks and interactions common to the coaching and performance management process. It is used for the design and implementation of training plans, the assignment and tracking of workouts, the administration and reporting of performance testing, the development of training zones, the evaluation of heart rate and power files, and the management of client correspondence, among other functions. Used by Sixcycle coaches and athletes, and available for customization and license, the Sixcycle Training Platform is the most comprehensive suite of tools available for coaches today.

Team Sixcycle-RK&O Brand Sponsor: ZICO

From ZICO:

As a company, we're on a mission to tell the world that Mother Nature knows a few things about sports drinks. The result: ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water. We’re athletes. We drink ZICO daily (lots of it!), feel that it works, and want to help others make the switch to ZICO too. We also think coconut water can become an important alternative agricultural product for the developing world and are committed to bring you ZICO in a socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable way.

Team Sixcycle-RK&O Equipment Partner: Litespeed

Team Sixcycle-RK&O is proud to present Litespeed as the official frame sponsor for the 2012 season. The team will be riding the 2013 C1R and 2013 L1R - Litespeed's highest end race frames.

From Litespeed:

We’re a tradition, you might say, but we’re anything but traditional. Our original — and still hand made in the USA — titanium frames are legendary. But, we’ve never ceased in our search for a better ride because when we’re not fine-tuning a design or out building a great bike, we’re spending time in the saddle. Like you, we think spending a Saturday morning spinning past acres of farmland or carving a stretch of newly discovered single track on a crisp fall morning are just about the best things on earth.

In our 25 years at this game, we’ve had a chance to learn quite a bit about what goes into building a bike you can fall in love with. In the 1980’s, we pioneered titanium as a viable high-performance bicycle material. In the 90’s — a decade of tube-shaping innovation — our bikes were the first choice of professional teams, and many rode re-branded Litespeeds to victory at the most elite level. Well beyond the new millennium, our bikes have become the de facto “secret” training weapon of pro athletes worldwide despite the athletes’ contractual obligations to race other equipment. Consequently, when our celebrated C-Series line of carbon bikes arrived in 2009, the lineup was a result of years of insight, careful consideration and our continued commitment to making the best bikes in the world.

Team Sixcycle-RK&O Equipment Partner: Louis Garneau

Team Sixcycle-RK&O is proud to present Louis Garneau as the official kit sponsor for the 2012 season. The team is excited to be wearing high quality custom Louis Garneau appereal from head to toe.
