24th June 2014

ŠKODA UK is the official vehicle sponsor for The London-Paris 2014 bicycle ride and will back the event (26-29 June) with a fleet of 18 Octavia and Superb Estates.

The fleet will transport a 260-strong crew of mechanics, marshals, outriders and sports therapists through the three stages of the event to support 400 riders.

To coincide with the sponsorship, 12 ŠKODA fleet staff and customers are preparing to embark on the 300-mile endurance ride as part of Team ŠKODA.

The team, which includes Patrick McGillycuddy, Head of Fleet, Henry Williams, National Fleet Sales Manager and Andrew Thomas, Rental and Motability Manager, will set off from London on Thursday 26 June and tackle the route over three days.

“This is the fourth year that ŠKODA has been the official vehicle sponsor and the third year ŠKODA has entered a team into The London-Paris," said Patrick. “We're really excited to be part of such an iconic event and have all been training hard and ramping up the mileage in preparation for the 300-mile challenge."
