FILA Australia Sponsors Cyclists at Arbitrage Masters

FILA Australia Arbitrage Masters Team

(FILA Australia) --

Arbitrage Racing is an organisation dedicated to providing a pathway for young Australian cyclists. Its unique structure allows riders to race at a state, national and international level in order to gain exposure as an elite cyclist and ultimately forge a professional career in the sport. 

Arbitrage Racing provides an opportunity for promising Western Australian athletes to race at a national level and ultimately, achieve international success. They are based in Perth, with connections across Australia and within Europe and Asia, enabling the company to place its riders in some of the most competitive cycling environments.

Following its initial establishment, Arbitrage Racing was successful in securing the support of a number of local companies, including FILA Australia which allowed for the development and expansion of the team and enabled its riders to participate in a broader range of state, national and international events.

Founded by Tony Anderson and Glenn Harris, Arbitrage has years of combined experience in the sport of cycling and features four teams of talented athletes. Arbitrage Racing is the parent company which owns and manages a junior development squad, an Under 23 development squad, Wormall Nicheliving, an elite international squad, Bianchi Lotto Arbitrage (International Cycling Team), and an Elite Masters team, Arbitrage Masters.

We believe that hard work and dedication breeds success, and that is what Arbitrage Racing is committed to achieving. Arbitrage Racing believes in making an investment in young riders and providing them with an environment within which they can develop at their own pace and embraces the values of respect, fair play and team work.

The Masters team has a current roster of eight riders competing in weekly in masters events, as well as State and National Championships. The roster includes:

TONY ANDERSON
BRUCE DAVIES
SCOTT SANDERS                               
IAN GREGORY

MATTHEW UPTON
WADE KEYSER
ADAM FEILDING
LUKE PLEDGER

This segment of the sport is growing significantly and interest in teams racing is also growing rapidly. The Arbitrage Masters team, which is currently supported by FILA Australia is considered to be one of the top masters teams in WA.

The team boasts many years of combined experience in cycling and life and meets regularly with the younger Arbitrage Racing riders to share experiences and mentor the younger riders in many varied aspects of the sport and assist them where possible with career development and preparation for a life after cycling.
