Sponsored British Cyclist on Pace To Break World Record

West Jordan, UT – Reynolds Cycling, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of high performance bicycle wheels, will welcome its sponsored rider, Mike Hall, as the long-distance cyclist passes through West Jordan this Thursday, May 3. Hall is currently leading the World Cycle Racing Grand Tour, a brutal, 18,000-mile race against the clock.

“This race is the distance of five Tours de France, which is just unfathomable by non-superhumans,” stated Reynolds Cycling’s Director of Sales and Marketing Rob Aguero.

“Mike, who is winning by a big margin, is an amazing athlete and we’re proud that he put his trust in Reynolds wheels for this important race.”

Hall is riding custom Reynolds 46mm wheels with disc hubs, a setup that he planned at length with Reynolds’ distributor in the United Kingdom, Upgrade Bikes.

When Hall passes through West Jordan, he will be more than fifty percent of the way through his race, which started on
February 18, 2012, in his home country of England. His participation in the race is both a quest to break the current World Record
for global circumnavigation by bicycle, and a fundraising effort for the charity Cycle-a-Difference.

This is Hall’s first attempt at the World Cycle Racing Grand Tour, and he is one of ten competitors. His progress, and a link to his own website, is viewable at the website www.worldcycleracing.com.

For those local to the Salt Lake City area, there will be a brief opportunity to meet Mike Hall on Thursday, May 3, at Millcreek Bicycles, located at 3969 S. Wasatch Blvd in Salt Lake City.
