MAAP is proud to announce our involvement as the co-naming rights sponsor of the freshest UCI Continental team, State of Matter MAAP Racing.
The team will largely race in the domestic NRS competition, but will also target key international races.
Co-Founder of MAAP Oliver Cousins says “We’re so stoked to be behind the State of Matter MAAP Racing team for 2016. Our apparel is designed to be tested in the elite performance environment, and to have these guys wearing our kit and representing us in competition is a proud moment for us”.
The team roster is one of the youngest in the NRS, with an average age of just 20.5 years, making it a good cultural fit with what the MAAP brand is about. “We’re a young brand ourselves, so we love that link with a young group of guys laying it all on the line”.
The team will be wearing a kit dominated by MAAP’s signature aqua colourway, and already cycling commentators and fans are taking notice. “This kit was a chance to really create something cool, not constrained by anything other than our own imagination and design ideas. The fact that the riders and fans love it is a bonus”.
The team is also supported by other top level brands such as Shimano Australia, Giant Bicycles and Renault Australia.
