Schenker paralympics

SCHENKER Ltd has assisted Cycling Ireland’s Paralympic cycling team in collecting, delivering and forwarding their brand new equipment for the Beijing Games.

The four bike strong Irish team, which departed for China on 23 August, will be racing in the one km trial, three km and four km pursuit, track competitions, time trials and road races.

Tandem supplier, Co-Motion makes the tandems to order in Eugene, Oregon, USA and Schenker (Ireland) brought the frames and parts in from America in order that the training could start in earnest.

“The team has been training hard thanks to Schenker and the prompt arrival of the cycles in Ireland everything has been going exactly to plan. We would be delighted with top 10 places in Beijing,” said Irish Paralympic cycling manager, Denis Toomey.

Shane O’Shaughnessy, Schenker business development and marketing director, said: “It’s great to be able to assist such a worthy cause. Paralympic cycling has really taken off as a sport and it’s important that the Irish competitors should be able to compete right up there with the rest of the best, so Schenker has been delighted to play its part.”
