Clive Brook Volvo partners with Brownlee Tri as brothers return triumphant from Rio.
Clive Brook Volvo has proudly announced it will be a supporting partner of this year’s Brownlee Tri, held in the heart of Yorkshire, and hosted by Olympic and Commonwealth Champion brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee. Having represented the Volvo brand in Yorkshire for over a decade, with dealerships in Bradford and most recently, Huddersfield, Clive Brook has also been proactive in supporting local sporting events and for 2016 has aligned its name with the Brownlee Tri.
With just under a month to go, the Brownlee Tri will return to the stunning grounds of Harewood House, Leeds, on Saturday 24th September, where competitors get the chance to run the routes the Brownlees regularly train, as well as riding on the same roads as the Tour de France peloton. Through the partnership, Clive Brook will be exhibiting at the triathlon for competitors and spectators to come and see the multi award-winning XC90 on display and meet their local Volvo representatives.
As an event partner, Clive Brook will also be taking a fleet of Volvos liveried with the Brownlee Tri logo on to shuttle participants on race day to and from collection and drop off points surrounding the venue.
Managing director at Clive Brook Volvo, Clive Brook, commented on the partnership: “Following successful customer events with British UCI Continental cycling team, Madison Genesis, we wanted to further support local sporting events and the Brownlee Tri was the perfect fit as many of our customers are keen sports enthusiasts.
“Returning from Rio with both the gold and silver medals, Alistair and Jonny’s Brownlee Tri is another example of their incredible prowess as triathletes. It enables beginners, youths, teams and even the most seasoned triathletes to get involved in the discipline surrounded by some of the most scenic areas of Yorkshire.
“It’s a real pleasure to be able to align our name with two of Britain’s most successful triathletes through our sponsorship of the Brownlee Tri. From everyone at Clive Brook we wish everyone taking part the best of luck!”
