Brands Manager at Cowbell, Joseph Ashong said the company was ready to host one of the biggest cycling events in the capital.
“We are almost done putting together the sponsorship package which would include products and cash while all logistics have also been put together to host a very successful event,” he stated.
He said, Cowbell was committed to supporting the growth of cycling to the highest level and called on the cyclists to give out their best during the competition.
He urged the cycling fraternity to remain united in order to attract more sponsorship and also host a national event.
“Cycling has a great future and the upcoming race would be used as a test case to bring other brands on board. Transparency and discipline are important to the growth of the sport, “he stated.
Chairman of the GACF, Kofi Boakye Yiadom commended Cowbell for coming on board to support cycling.
He said the 19-member technical team is capable and dedicated to the sport and was certain they would ensure a very transparent and successful competition.
