Silca sponsors Marian collegiate cycling team

Published June 17, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS (BRAIN) — Silca is sponsoring a collegiate cycling team near the historic brand's new home in Indiana. 

The company has become the official inflation sponsor of the Marian University Cycling Team, which recently earned its 26th Team National Championship and fifth-straight road championship. The wins at collegiate nationals in Richmond, Virginia, last weekend helped the team wrap its second straight season as the top Division 1 Collegiate Team in the country.

"Our brand values are passion, precision, and performance, and I cannot think of any group that better embodies these values than the team at Marian University," said Silca owner Josh Poertner. "Their willingness to test, learn about, and implement new ideas and technologies rivals the top ProTour teams I've worked with. I'm thrilled to enter this next phase of our company's nearly 100-year history with Marian as a partner."
