Successful ventures are those that do not come to an end. Now in its fifth year, the team from Irschenberg, Bavaria, has a new name - Maloja Pushbikers. The values of the team remain the same: to love the sport, to provide a platform for young amateur cyclists, to keep track racing alive in Germany. And most importantly: to do all this with style.
The team’s new name is inspired by the “Pushbike Song,“ released by the Australian band “The Mixture“ in 1970. The tune highlights that cycling is not solely a means of transportation or a sport but a way of life, a philosophy, a passion. This sentiment is shared by Maloja – a further reason why the team is delighted to strengthen a partnership which began a decade ago, at a time when team leader Christian Grasmann was still a “lone rider“ and Maloja a fledgling company. The alliance between team and sponsor has grown steadily to the point where many Maloja products are now being developed in collaboration with our riders.
This year, 12 riders will enter the 2016 racing season as Maloja Pushbikers. It is their aspiration to remain one of the best racing teams in the world. But it is also their desire to spread their conviction.
On race tracks from Melbourne to Öschelbronn, at world cups and international championships, at road races from New York to Rosenheim their message is clear: be a pushbiker. Be a team player. Be passionate about what you do.
