Launch of New Cycle Race Team 'Team LFH'
Posted on August 07, 2013
Ellon-based LFH Engineering Ltd, specialists in the design and manufacturing of pumps, has teamed up with National Junior Madison Champion, Zak Loney, to form Aberdeenshire’s newest cycle race team.
'Team LFH' was launched last weekend when the 16-year-old Mintlaw Academy pupil took part in the Scottish Junior Road Race Championship at Leven, Fife, kitted out in the full Team LFH cycling gear.
Zak, formerly of Ythan Cycle Club, is currently working towards reaching the 2018 Commonwealth Games to represent Scotland. He is being assisted by professional coach, Ken Bryson who has worked with all levels of riders, from Commonwealth Games to World Masters competitors.
Zak commented: "It is fantastic to see a company investing in cycle sport for the first time, supporting riders who are attempting to progress further. My ultimate goal is to become a top cyclist with many medals under my belt and I look forward to working towards this as part of Team LFH, with the vital support of LFH Engineering and my coach behind me."
Les Hill, managing director at LFH Engineering Ltd, added: "Zak is at a critical stage as he strives to become a leading cyclist and I am delighted we are able to assist him.
"Supporting the local community and talent is of great importance to us as a business so this is a long-term investment for us, with hopes to add more promising cyclists to Team LFH." Launched in March 2010, LFH Engineering Ltd comes with a long established history of design and manufacturing of pumps for a wide range of industries specialising in, although not limited to, diesel engine mounted coolant pumps. Its expanding portfolio of customers includes Caterpillar, Rolls Royce Marine and Man Diesel.
