Bundaberg Sugar sponsor big race

Home town business giant Bundaberg Sugar has jumped in to the saddle at Drinan Park, committing sponsorship dollars to December's Bundy Cup on Wheels.

Organisers are busy securing big-name riders for what is said to be Australia's biggest track event this year and Bundaberg Sugar sales and marketing manager Guy Basile was happy to be part of it.

“We're a big part of Bundaberg and it's important to support these events that will benefit the community,” he said.

“It also promotes a health and safety message within our company and the community as well.”

President Toby Boylan is about one month away from returning to the track and is hoping to be fit to ride alongside good mates and local professional Aaron Kemps, Allan and Scott Davis.

“Those guys are really good with the kids too, it'll be a great experience for the juniors to come and ride alongside their heroes,” he said.

“Hopefully I'll be right to ride by then as well.”

Bundaberg Sugar was among the major sponsors of the Cane2Coral earlier this year, an event that proved ultra-successful.

Basile and the Bundaberg Cycling Club hope the rebirth of the Cup will grow into something just as popular.

“Obviously being its first time back for a while it will hopefully get bigger and bigger,” club secretary Jason Templeman said.
