FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tim Lips and Bavaria 0.0 launch first commercial team in equestrian sport
Lieshout, February 15, 2017 - Triple Olympic eventing rider Tim Lips and former coach of the Dutch Eventing Team Martin Lips are delighted to announce their partnership with Bavaria 0.0 including the foundation of the first ever commercial team in equestrian sport.
The team offers talented eventing riders an elite platform towards the world of their top level sport and Tokyo 2020. The collaboration functions as a springboard to connect businesses and eventing at elite level, something that was before almost impossible to achieve for riders.
Optimal guidance for both horse and rider
The establishment of the Bavaria 0.0 Eventing Team includes training and mentoring support coupled with technical riding. Trade cooperation is an addition to the current top sports policy and the activities of the Royal Dutch Equestrian Federation.
For optimum guidance and performance, the team will work closely with various specialists in the fields of health and fitness, talent support and development plus close analysis and recording of individual performance factors. Not to mention support from former athletes, elite veterinarians plus sports marketing and communication.
Tim Lips: "The financial support that the Bavaria 0.0 Eventing Team has promised for years has inspired us with energy and confidence. To provide a solid platform and create opportunities for talented eventing riders is essential and exactly what Dutch eventing needs to connect with the world. Bavaria 0.0 is giving this to us."
Pieter Swinkels of Bavaria: "The passion and vision of Tim and Martin Lips are nothing short of admirable. Because of our sponsorship with Tim Lips last year we were exposed to eventing in a great way. I am extremely proud that today we can announce this special collaboration with ambition and drive that we hope resounds with eventing riders everywhere. "
