Recent News

Vancouver, BC – The H&R Block Pro Cycling Team welcomes Thule to the team.

As the team continues to grow, it is important for the team to have a car and trailer rack system that can perform in a professional race environment that is; durable, reliable, easy to use and provides fast access to the bikes.

Thule was established in Sweden in 1942 with the vision to help transport anything you care for safely, easily and in style so you are free to live your active life. As the team takes the next steps in the level of support required to service the riders quickly, the Thule Sidearm provides the solution. “Thule is known for it’s quick release system that will enable our team mechanic to remove bikes quickly and have the confidence that the bikes will be secure on the team cars in all race conditions”, says team owner Mark Ernsting.

“We are proud to be a part of the H&R Block Pro Cycling Team and are looking forward to supporting their athletes and crew with our industry leading products.” – Chris Ritchie, Thule PR & Communications Manager.

Having the team trailer outfitted with a system that allows the bikes to be mounted with both wheels vertically will help save a tremendous amount of space and time by not having to remove the front wheel. This along with having three full rack systems on the team cars will maximize the team’s carrying capacity as they travel across North America.
