About VC LOVE&ROCKETS
Born out of a dream to bring some rock & roll into the world of cycling, VC LOVE&ROCKETS is the fixed gear crit racing arm of the mighty VC Londres.
Aware that their young riders are looking at the fixed crit scene as the coolest thing on two wheels, Tony and Joseph set out to establish their own team to add a further development tool to their existing palette.
Their aim is to continue to develop young riders through the LOVE&ROCKETS moniker, and start a collaboration with select partners that share their mission and ideals of educating and developing young athletes to become the best they can be, and wish to be part of this adventure in the long-term.
They believe that sports and creative arts are probably the only fields where it is one’s productions that count, not the skin colour, gender, creed or nationality, and they would like to continue providing the best possibilities to all their young athletes.
Ultimately, in their quest for educational, equal opportunities for all the young people out there, Tony and Joseph would like to be instrumental in creating a new business model for competitive cycling that will help the sport survive shifts in world economy that could threaten those opportunities.
This business model aims to become self-sustainable, entertaining the spectators with an all day festival of events, with live music, food and drinks stalls, where several races take place during the day, for both male and female, with road bike and fixed gear bikes.
Will LOVE&ROCKETS succeed in making rock&roll cycling fun & sustainable?
“The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind...“
See you on the road!

Your logo, seen by thousands...
The advertising potential of cycling is an extremely cost-effective way to display products and promote brands, whilst offering great opportunities for the sponsors to organise VIP Hospitality in the best cities in the world.
The Mr Porter Nocturne event attracts as many as 15,000 visitors, with TV coverage and spectators lining the streets to watch the best of the amateur scene and some of the UK’s top pros compete in this iconic cycling event. (The Mr Porter Nocturne was established in 2007 and is the only night-time cycle race in the London).
Your company logo could have been on her jersey!
In their first season of existence, LOVE&ROCKETS are looking for select partners to take a turn on the front and help develop the squad into one of the best fixed crit teams in the world.
How great would your company logo look on the LOVE&ROCKETS skinsuits? Would you like to sponsor team VC LOVE&ROCKETS?
We aim to provide the best possibilities to all young athletes, especially to the female ones, and help them make a career in cycling.
Ultimately, this is the first step of a long-term plan to create a new business model for competitive cycling that will help the sport survive trends and economic shifts, and assist the riders in their quest for financial independence.
At present, we are looking for partners that can help us deliver those opportunities by contributing the necessary assets & funds needed to ease the financial burden associated with the setting up of a trade cycling team such as LOVE&ROCKETS.
What we can offer to our partners and sponsors, aside from excellent capital gains revenues for individuals under the SEIS scheme, is unrivalled brand exposure and a strong presence on all social media for all commercial companies, together with:
• Use of the Team for advertising campaigns, marketing and clients’ entertainment
• Company’s logo on jerseys, bikes, team’s website and Instagram page
• Opportunity to use the athletes as brand ambassadors and for publicity campaigns
• Advertising banners at Herne Hill Velodrome
• Rides with the Team to raise money towards a chosen charity
• Use of the Team for staff rides to promote team building and increase staff feel- good factor
• Worldwide opportunity for VIP Hospitality available for our sponsors and their clients
There are many level of sponsorship available to the interested parties.
Alongside the above benefits, we are also planning to organise several cycling events, where brands and products could be sold or distributed - it would even be possible to part-name an event after a company and brand. Interested in becoming a partner in this venture?
