The Swami Vivekananda College Year 13 student is thankful to Flight Centre, a company based in Australia, for its generousity.

“I’ve always wanted to compete on a road bike but I could not afford one,” said the 17- year-old.

His dad, Percy, a former national cycling rep thanked Flight Centre for their help.

“I thank Flight Centre and Lucock (Nick) for their support and also Pacific Destinationz who have been supportive of the activities of Nadi Cycling Association.

“This also marks the first time that Nadi will be competing in the three-day event.”

Pacific Destinationz’s managing director, James Sowane said, “Pacific Destinationz is the ground agents in Fiji for Flight Centre. I met up with Lucock last July in Brisbane knowing that he is a keen cyclist,” said Sowane.

“I told him about Anthony’s talent and his goal to compete in this year’s Tour of Fiji and that Anthony will compete in the mountain bike category as his family cannot afford the price of a road bike.”

Sowane added that Lucock assured him of the support from Flight Centre.

“They would like to support Anthony as Flight Centre has great interest in cycling through its joint venture company 99 Bikes, Australia’s leading bike and accessories retailer.”

Team Nadi would like to thank their sponsors Summer Holiday, Restaurants including LC’s, Small Plates, Chan, China travel, DEO Associates and My Doctors.

The Tour of Fiji is a three-stage race which begins from Nadi to Suva commencing today and ending on Sunday.
