Starkenn Sports Pvt. Ltd. today announced the appointment of cycling enthusiast Srinivas Gokulnath as its new brand ambassador. As a part of this association, Starkenn handed over Giant’s two bicycles, Trinity Advanced and Propel Advanced Disc to Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath. Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath is the first Indian who has completed world’s toughest 4900 km Race Across America (RAAM) in solo category. As per the reports of Aero Concepts Engineering (ACE) from France, Propel Advanced Disc is the fastest road bike in the world and Trinity Advanced is the time trial road bike. Current world champion of cycling uses Giant’s Trinity Advanced bicycle. To start this association, Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath will be using the Giant bicycles in the upcoming Tour of Austria event, one of the toughest road bike racing competition, which happens every year in Austria.

Mr. Pravin V Patil, MD & CEO, Starkenn Sports Pvt. Ltd. addressed the press conference along with Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath at the newly opened Giant Starkenn Cycling World (GSCW) & Starkenn Technical Center (STC) at Pimpri Chinchwad.

Ltd. have always extended our support to athletes and those who are committed to creating awareness about cycling as a sport, and are committed to providing them with the best products and service as can be seen at our first GSCW and STC here at Chinchwad in Pimpri Chinchwad. Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath is dedicated to promote fitness and we appreciate his approach towards the same. We look forward to this association and would like to convey my best regards to him for the upcoming Tour of Austria. We all want to see him making it big on international platforms such as Tour of Austria, just like the way he made all Indians proud with his achievements in Race Across America (RAAM).”

Commenting on the appointment Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath said, “I am extremely humbled to be appointed as brand ambassador for a brand like Giant Starkenn. I am grateful to Mr. Patil for having faith in me. Being cycling enthusiasts, I really appreciate when people come forward to support cycling.

Mr. Srinivas Gokulnath became the first Indian who had successfully completed 4900 KM Race Across America (RAAM) in solo category. RAAM is considered as world’s toughest cycling race. Unlike the Tour De France, RAAM is a multi-day event where the participants have to cycle continuously for hours together, which tests them physically and mentally. Like RAAM, Tour of Austria is also one of the toughest road bike racing competition which happens every year in Austria.
