It’s another Swift result for Sir Bradley and team
Two top-end motorhomes from the Swift Group are once again part of Team Wiggins as the world-famous cyclist and his fellow pros gear up for the new racing season.
For the second year running, the cycling team’s organisers have asked Swift to provide Sir Bradley Wiggins and his fellow riders and support crew with bespoke models from the company’s range.
The vehicles will travel with Team Wiggins both in the UK and on the continent, providing a much-welcomed facility for relaxing, freshening-up, preparing food and dining during race events.
Swift has added extra fridges into both the Swift Escape and Swift Kon-tiki to help keep food fresh, and has fully upholstered the interiors in dark leather for ultimate comfort.
Each motorhome also has a large auto tracking satellite TV dish for the team to watch race footage, and the interiors are kept at the perfect temperature with full air-conditioning in the main living areas.
Each motorhome has been fully liveried in corporate Team Wiggins colours, and the roll-out awnings have also been digitally printed with the Team Wiggins logo.
Team spokesman Andrew McQuaid said: “It has been great for everyone to have use of the Swift Group motorhomes this year, and they have already covered many miles including a tour of Croatia.
“The Swift Escape and Swift Kon-tiki, with their cavernous interiors and superb fittings, are great assets for the riders both before and after the race,” he added.
Sarah Bell, one of the main support crew and the cook for the team, said: “The Swift Escape has been so reliable, and the kitchen has allowed me to bake cakes and cook meals for up to twenty people!”
Nick Page, Swift Group commercial director, commented “We are again extremely proud to be supporting Team Wiggins with the supply of our two motorhomes.
“The Swift Escape is one of the UK’s best-selling motorhome ranges, and the 686 layout the team are using offers great luxury and space.
“We are also supplying a Swift Kon-tiki 649 which is our top of the range motorhome and offers true luxury in its features, and really stands out of the crowd in the Team Wiggins livery.
“We are constantly looking to expand our sales in Europe, and having Team Wiggins showcase our products across the EU while they race is fantastic,” said Nick.
Team Wiggins was welcomed to Swift’s HQ in Beverley in North Yorkshire at the end of April, and was cheered by more than a thousand employees of the company.
