The agency has secured a double-event brief from British Cycling. Taking place just over a month apart, Rule 5 will handle the PR and social media the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Manchester and British Cycling National Track Championships, which will be held at Manchester’s National Cycling Centre, this September and November.
British Cycling Cycle Sport Marketing Manager, Paul Rowlands, said of the agency; “This was a competitive tender but Rule 5’s creative, hands-on approach stood out and has delivered impressive results for British Cycling in the past. We’re happy to welcome the team on-board again ahead of the autumn/winter’s action-packed track cycling calendar.” Launched in November 2012, Rule 5 also handled the PR and social media for the recent UCI BMX Supercross World Cup, which took place in April. The new track cycling brief follows another recent successful international sporting account win for the agency; the Taekwondo Grand Prix.
Rule 5’s Julie Wilson, added; “We’re delighted to be working with British Cycling again ahead of the Track World Cup and National Track Championships. Working on last year’s World Cup in Glasgow certainly whet Rule 5’s appetite for live cycling events and we’re excited to be helping to bring another one to our home city in 2013.”
