“Today Ass Savers announces a partnership with the Ritte Women’s Team and launches a team edition from which 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Southern California-based team’s funds for traveling to the Rás na mBan women’s bike race in Ireland this September.”
Read on for the full press-release and more photos and head over to Ass Savers to scoop one of these Ritte Women’s Team editions.
Ass Savers Jungho Kim shared his thoughts on the company’s sponsorship of the Ritte Women’s Team:
“At Ass Savers, we feel that as a company we should be supporting cycling equally and at as many levels as we can. Yes, this is a male dominated sport and that’s something which is quite apparent if you look. When we first started talking with the Ritte Women’s Team we found that they share the same kind of lightheartedness and enjoyment of cycling that we have, and of course they’re super dedicated to their sport and they take it very seriously. It just seemed natural to collaborate with them and we’re really excited to support women’s cycling.”
The team will use the proceeds to help take them to Ireland where they will participate in the country’s premier women’s stage race which takes place over six stages in five days and covers 427km. This is the second year running that the Ritte Women’s Team will compete in the event.
Ritte Sponsor Coordinator and rider Kelli Samuelson commented, “The Ritte Women’s Team is more then excited about this partnership, after five days of racing in the rain and mud in Ireland in 2013 we look forward to having our asses saved by Ass Savers. We look forward to a growing partnership with such a great company that is supporting women’s cycling.”
