In addition to lots of cutting tool and workholding innovation on show from Ceratizit UK & Ireland at MACH 2022 the company is also raising valuable funds for its two chosen charities, these being the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.
Ceratizit UK & Ireland with the help of its customers raises a significant amount for these two charities every year. So far, the amount raised is in excess of £54,000. It is hoping that this figure will be given a significant boost in the run-up to MACH, with a Hope HB130 mountain bike, valued at over £6000 on offer. The winning entry will be chosen on the first day of MACH 2022 (4th April) live on the Ceratizit stand (18-210) at 2:00pm by World, Olympic, European and Commonwealth cycling champion Katie Archibald MBE.
To be in with a chance of claiming this prize, which will be custom-fit to the winner simply make a minimum donation of £10.00 at https://www.justgiving.com/teams/WNTEVENTS where you can select which of the two charities you want to support. In addition to making the draw, Katie will be on the Ceratizit Stand from 10:00am through to 3:00pm, where she will be happy to chat, sign autographs and, be available for photos.
Katie’s presence on the Ceratizit UK & Ireland stand marks her return to competing with the UCI Women’s Continental team CERATIZIT-WNT Pro Cycling on a three year contract. As part of the team Katie will compete in major road races, including the Tour of Britain, but her focus will be track cycling with the aim of winning more gold medals at the Commonwealth Games in 2022, The World Championships in 2023 and the cherry on the cake being the Paris Olympics in 2024. For many of her races in the velodrome Katie will be riding the Hope Technology/Lotus/British Cycling track bike that has been manufactured at Hope Technology’s Barnoldswick factory using tooling supplied by Ceratizit.
Speaking of her return to CERATIZIT-WNT Pro Cycling Katie commented: “I have spent the past few years concentrating on my track career, but the best year I’ve had on the roads was in 2017 with what was at the time WNT, so whether it is a decision driven by nostalgia I don’t know, but I feel really comfortable and confident coming back to re-tackle some road ambitions while continuing to support my track ambitions, with a team that I know works. I’m looking at 30 races this year with the season’s goals centred around the Tour of Britain, but the biggest thing on my calendar this year is the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, riding the Orbea team bike for the time trial and the Hope bike for the track events.”
