    Default Firefox Bikes launched road cycling team - Team Trek Firefox

    Team Trek Firefox, is the first road cycling team to be launched by an Indian company.

    Firefox has taken the initiative in India to popularize cycling. The MD of Firefox, Shiv Inder Singh, said that for a sport to grow in popularity, the people of the place need to look up to champions. The goal of this venture is to build a champion. To try and get a medal at the Asian Games in Korea in 2014. To this end the company will be getting world class trainers and training methods to the team, to give them an opportunity at the highest level. He further stated, that such a venture does not guarantee success, but is an experiment as much as it is a goal. He further congratulated the cyclists who had achieved a lot without any infrastructure and hoped that they would do better with the backing of Firefox. On being asked about his views on the Customs Duties which were tripled last year on cycles by the central govt., Mr. Singh said, that Firefox was in talks to form a group of cycle importers, so that they can get the govt. to reduce the same. As cycling is a green sport and increasing the costs of imported cycles, makes it only more difficult for Indians to take up cycling as a sport.

    Onkar Singh, Cycling Federation of India, said that the emphasis should be on young cyclists. So that they have a sufficiently long career to make a mark for themselves on the world stage. The CFI is also planning to open a training centre in New Delhi to help facilitate youngsters in this sport.

    Srinath Rajam, Team Director and Coach, said that the team will be trained by the Peaks Coaching Group. This is the group that started Power Training. Sachin Parmar, the best cyclist of the team will be training under Tim Cusack, a coach who trains pros only. The team will be trained using modern scientific methods to ensure that the team is competitive on the world stage.

    Team Trek Firefox is the real mixture of experience and up-and-coming talent. All the 8 cyclists in the team have participated at national levels and have been selected from over 200 applications through a rigorous selection process. The team will be mentored by Srinath Rajam, Level 3 ABCC (Association of British Cycling Coaches) and backed by world class coaching company Peaks Coaching Group.

    Mr. Shiv Inder Singh, Managing Director, Firefox Bikes -

    Its our attempt to work with Indias best young cyclists and majority of them aged between 17 to 21 years. The key feature of Team Trek Firefox is the use of sophisticated electronic measuring devices to monitor & constantly improve the power, strength & output of the cyclist.
    Team Trek Firefox is seeking to redefine coaching/ training methods in India from mindless endurance training to developing the peak power output of the athlete,
    Firefox Bikes has been a key factor in the development of competitive cycling in the country. The team consists of eight members from different parts of the country like Delhi, Chennai, Meerut, Hyderabad, Rajasthan, Bangalore and Bihar.
    The elite team is the result of passion, vision, ambition and fully-fitted on with power. The aim behind the launch is to develop the professional cycling scene in India, and giving the countrys cycling talent a chance to interact and get training from the best coaches globally.

    Mr. Srinath Rajam, Team Director and Coach -

    We aim to provide India's best young cyclists a platform to further progress their national and international careers by giving them cutting edge cycling training and racing experiences backed by world class coaches.
    It would be an appropriate platform for the young enthusiasts to excel themselves, as team will provide right environment, equipments, training sessions and complete holistic approach for becoming best cyclists. We intend to compete across India once a month in road races, time trials and in the future also in Cyclocross, track and cycle speedway.
    Onkar Singh, Hony. Secretary General, Cycling Federation of India -

    I congratulate Firefox Bikes for creating a new cycling culture in India. Firefox Bikes has taken an effective initiative and we would focus on the young cyclists as they have lot of potential and we want them to stay with us for next 5-10 years. Cycling Federation of India is also into opening up a training club in New Delhi. We hope to achieve superior result in future as it will provide multi-level approach for cycling.
    Firefox Bikes is planning to widen the eligibility criteria by introducing the next set of age group, providing the young enthusiasts a chance to apply and get hands on experience from the best.

    ^^ Cycling needs to be rejuvenated in this country, cycling is something that everyone learns in their childhood days but still they fail to carry it to their adulthood. I seriously wish that everyone buys a cycle for their short errands, short commutes, recreation.
    Rather than promoting cycling by reducing taxes and giving subsidies the top m@&$ns are trying to nip the budding cyclist by increasing the taxes to make sure that a good cycle is far from the reach of a an average middle class.

    Exactly what I questioned the MD of Firefox about. And he said that they are forming a group of Cycle Importers and they will approach the govt. to reduce the customs duty. Hopefully the will succeed and we the cycling enthusiasts will benefit.

    Wow, nice to know that you were there to speak on behalf of the cyclist.
    Exactly that should be the way, If they can't make it, let them get it from somewhere else.
    I still cant understand the attitude of hero cycles, being the largest (crap) cycle maker and they are resting on the laurels.
    Considering hero, Hercules and Firefox are doing a better job both in quality and bringing cycles from abroad.

    wonderful effort, if government is not willing to do something, its good that private companies are coming forward.

    Superlikey. Being a cyclist myself, encourages one to do even more.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.
