Total Motion has been named as the Official Vehicle Lease Partner for the British men’s UCI Continental cycling team, ONE PRO Cycling.

Sponsorship from the Leicester-based vehicle management business – which has a strong cycling culture – is worth around £150,000 over the next two years.

ONE PRO Cycling – which was co-founded late 2014 by former England cricketer Matt Prior – became the first British team to progress to Professional Continental level in 2016.

With a strong international 10-rider roster, it is currently competing at UCI Continental level races across the UK and Europe, entering events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and Coppi e Bartali in Italy.

As well as supporting ONE PRO Cycling in these goals, the partnership will assist Total Motion in its own ambitions to get more people into cycling.

Simon Hill, managing director of Total Motion, said: “We are proud to be associated with ONE PRO Cycling.  It is always very exciting for us to see the team’s success supported by Total Motion, and we applaud ONE PRO’s drug-free policy. It is very important to us that riding is kept clean. 

“Our own business has a strong cycling culture, with members of our team raising more than £10,000 in the last 12 months through taking part in charity bike rides.

“We are also a cycling-friendly employer and encourage our staff to get on their bikes by providing them with showers, lockers, a bike storage room and a cycle to work scheme.

“This partnership reinforces the health benefits of cycling and the positive impact it has on people’s well-being. “

As part of the deal, ONE PRO will have access to the Total Motion Affinity Scheme.  Aimed at select corporate organisations, the scheme has been designed to make vehicle leasing easy and affordable for all employees. 

Matt Prior, CEO of ONE PRO Cycling added: “We are really pleased to welcome Total Motion to our group of partners. Simon and his team at Total Motion really see the value that cycling can offer a company and we are really looking forward to encouraging more people to get out on their bikes”.
