Fujitsu is backing one of the UK’s leading cycle racing teams, which has enjoyed a record-breaking year in 2019 and is aiming for further success in 2020.

Recent highlights for the Arctic Aircon Racing Team include a new UK competition team record for the 100-mile time trial distance, individual and team wins in time trials on the road, plus fifth place in the Pan-Celtic 1,500-mile unsupported individual race by rider Neil Lauder.
Having set the bar high in 2019, the team are eagerly anticipating next season. Team rider Stewart House has the honour of organising the British National Hill Climb Championships in October 2020, which will take place in Streatley, on the Berkshire/Oxfordshire border.

This annual race, which was first held in 1944, is hosted in a different UK location each year. Riders compete in the hope of joining the list of previous winners, which include Malcolm Elliot and Chris Boardman, who has taken the top spot four times.

Renowned as the most social national championship in the calendar, Arctic Aircon is aiming to give over 400 of the top British climbers and around 3,000 spectators a championship to remember.

Giles Pratt, Area Business Development Manager, Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK, said: “We are proud to provide support to such a successful team in a sport that requires such teamwork and dedication, adding to the already valued partnership we have with Arctic Aircon.”
