Rejlers and Stockholm Cycling Club Start Elite Teams for Men & Women


Rejlers (STO:REJL)

In the space of less than a year, Stockholm Cycling Club (SCC) has moved
from being a newly formed club to bringing together some of the best
men’s and women’s cyclists in the Stockholm region in a focused elite
programme for road races. Rejlers is the main sponsor and continues to
invest in health and Sweden’s fastest growing sport.

Next year SCC will have competitive teams in both the men’s and women’s
elites, with a clear goal of competing for medals in the Swedish
championships in both individual road races and time trials. The teams
assemble some of the Stockholm region’s best competitive cyclists,
combining young promising cyclists and more experienced competitive

“After starting cycling together in the 2014 season, the 40 or so
members in the original group, with the help of our sponsor technology
consultant Rejlers, have continued to develop,” comments Thomas
Backteman, chairman of the Stockholm Cycling Club. “In 2015, we took the
plunge and formed a club, as several members of our team, the Rejlers
Cycling Team, wanted to start competing together. Now we are taking the
next step of bringing together some of the Stockholm region’s best
competitive cyclists in both the men’s and women’s sports. It’s great to
be able to help create a new competitive cycling team in Stockholm,
because it’s a way of strengthening cycling as a sport throughout
Sweden,” says Thomas Backteman.

“At Rejlers we’ve taken a strategic approach to health for many years
now, and we’re investing in different initiatives to get our employees
to feel healthy; cycling is just one of them. In collaboration with the
legendary Swedish-owned cycle brand Bianchi, I have travelled around the
Nordic countries handing out bikes at Rejlers’ offices. These bikes can
be used by staff to get to customer visits or to take part in one of the
amateur races arranged all over the Nordic region”, says Peter Rejler,
President and CEO of Rejlers.
