May 7th, 2019

Northwave and NICA are both extremely excited to announce their partnership

Northwave and NICA are both extremely excited to announce their partnership as Northwave becomes a sponsor of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association. Included in the partnership, Northwave will be offering a NICA discount to coaches and student athletes for the 2019 season and beyond.

“We are very excited to partner with NICA.  I personally started riding in my teens but had no organization like NICA to help me figure things out, so it feels great to pay it forward and help tomorrow’s riders get the assistance and tools needed to succeed in cycling and in life,” said Sean Kneale, US Brand Manager for Northwave.

“It’s great to see an established brand like Northwave joining NICA’s movement to build communities through cycling. As a brand that has supported cycling for decades, they have seen their fair share of superstar athletes over the years, and we hope their next star athlete might come from the rising ranks within our NICA member leagues. We are thankful for Northwave’s commitment to supporting and inspiring the next generation of cyclists; welcome to the NICA family!” said Austin McInerny, President of NICA.
