Cycle Fans Show Rams Allegiance In The Saddle
Triathlon kit specialists HUUB have teamed up with Umbro to design a new Derby County Football Club cycle kit to enable Rams Fans to show their team allegiance whilst clocking up the miles on two wheels.
The high quality kit includes a DCFC-branded short sleeve cycle jersey, bib shorts and jacket – all designed for maximum comfort and optimum fit.
The idea for the bespoke kit was born after HUUB supplied custom cycling kit for 11 DCFC staff who joined 400 cycling enthusiasts in last year’s Football to Amsterdam - a 145-mile bike ride finishing at the Ajax stadium to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
Dean Jackson, a lifelong Rams fan and owner of Derby-based HUUB, said: “Cycling and football go hand in hand in this city – not least due to Pride Park’s proximity to the Derby Arena and one of only five velodromes in the UK.
“The ‘Ramsterdam’ team received no end of compliments for their team kit last year and we thought it would be a great idea to give Derby County supporters who are also keen cyclists the chance to sport the new bespoke kit as well.
“So many more people have taken up road cycling during lockdown so there is a real appetite to wear scientifically designed kit that is both comfortable and fit for purpose on a long ride.
“This new kit therefore enables new and experienced riders to also show their allegiance to the Rams and fly the flag from the saddle as they clock up the miles on their bikes.”
Sam Lucas, Head of Sports Sponsorship at Umbro UK, continued “It’s been great to team up with HUUB and see the cycle kit come to life. The Derby Kit is not only stylish and crisp, but also technical which compliments what we do on the pitch.
“We know there will be some natural crossover between Rams fans supporting their team and enjoying cycling as a pastime, so why not support the team out on the road as well.”
