Application process opens for unique Saxo Ride Like A Pro initiative

Ride Like A Pro will give current and prospective clients of Saxo Bank the opportunity to live and train like a Tinkoff-Saxo cycling professional, learning everything from the anatomy of the bike to intense interval training like the Tinkoff-Saxo team. The exclusive cycling programme, offered free of charge to a small and select group, includes training, coaching and group rides with Tinkoff-Saxo cyclists, as well as the chance to race the toughest stages of a Grand Tour including the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España. The launch comes at a time when London is experiencing an increase in the take-up of cycling. According to Transport for London (TfL), cycling levels in the three months to December were the highest since records began in 2000 and it forecasts a 12% rise year-on-year in 2015.

Saxo’s Ride Like A Pro launch coincides with The London Bike Show taking place at Excel London from 12 – 15 February. Further details of the Ride like A Pro initiative will be available at Saxo Bank’s stand (LB1120) at the event. Selection of participants for the Ride Like A Pro team will take place over the next two months. The 30 lucky riders will be selected to participate over a 6 month period.

The Ride Like A Pro program also features:

  • Interactions with the World Tour’s Tinkoff-Saxo team
  • Intensive personalized training towards personal goals
  • High frequency group training sessions with supervision

Commenting on the launch, Matteo Cassina, Head of all Business Lines at Saxo Bank A/S said:

“At Saxo Bank, we encourage any investors or financial professionals with a passion for cycling to seize this once in a lifetime opportunity of training and riding like a professional cyclist and take their talent to a new level. Whether you are an existing or prospective client of the bank, you are welcome to apply for this unique challenge.”

The Ride Like A Pro program is aimed at helping participants achieve their physical and mental goals and it goes hand-in-hand with Trade Like A Pro, a competition on Saxo Bank’s multi-asset social trading site TradingFloor.com. The competition is designed for the riders of Tinkoff-Saxo team. By trading stocks, each rider will try to beat his team mates in the effort to raise as much money as possible for a charitable cause of their choice. During the competition, users of TradingFloor.com have the opportunity to follow Alberto Contador and his fellow riders’ trading activities, interact with them, post comments and strategies, discuss trading ideas and copy the best.
