Pumptrack expansion coming up
Sponsorship well timed
“With the targeted sponsoring of the expansion efforts, above all, we want to support the successful children's and youth work of the club,” explains Dr. Georg Geier, Managing Director of Siempelkamp Giesserei. In addition, according to Geier, this social commitment is intended to set an example of a good and familiar neighborhood. After all, some employees and their children are also members of the nearby mountain bike club.
The 1st Chairman of Home Trail Krefeld e.V., Jens Nowicka, is also pleased about the cooperation with the neighboring industrial company: Our club with 200 members, 90 of them young people, is growing strongly. There is currently a real boom in the sport.” That's why the sponsorship comes at just the right time to go forward with the expansion of the so-called pumptracks.
