Airborne to sponsor World Cup Downhill team for 2013, full-time position up for grabs.

Centerville, Ohio USA – April 1st, 2012

Airborne announced today that it will be sponsoring a 6 man professional team to compete in the World Cup Downhill Series for 2013.

“We know that the best way to continue to move our brand forward is to compete, and with the success of the Airborne Taka downhill bike the past two years, we feel that it is time to enter the World Cup” says Airborne PR Director Ty Webb. “We have been in final negotiations with a former World Cup Downhill champion to be Team Director for 2013. While it is too early to reveal her name, we can say that she rode downhill as fast as a missile, and will bring a lot of experience to the team.”

Airborne recently hired industry veteran Carl Spackler to come on board to develop the new Taka DH rig for 2013. “Look for the new Taka to put the team on the podium at every event in 2013. We will be the ‘Cinderella Story’ of 2013” says Spackler.

In addition to the team, Airbone will be holding a contest for a coveted full-time race reporter position.

“We are looking for someone to travel with the team and cover the entire race season on our blog, complete with photos and video. This will be a one-year full-time position with all expenses paid, and a salary of $100K” says Webb. “Details regarding the contest to be posted on Facebook in the next few weeks. We recommend that anyone interested in the position to be certain to “like” Airborne Bicycles to ensure they don’t miss the announcement and details.”
