Evans Cycles, the UK’s largest high street cycling retailer, has awarded its PR and social media brief to endurance sports specialist Fusion Media.

Founded in 2008, Fusion Media’s sporting roster includes Strava, Red Bull, Wahoo, Ribble Cycles, Shimano, Telegraph Events, Madison and Royal Dutch Gazelle.

“Fusion is the only agency we’ve ever met that ‘gets’ cycling and we’re really excited to be working together,” said James Backhouse, marketing director at Evans Cycles. “We chose the team because of their expertise, passion and clear enthusiasm for the job.

“We need an agency that can communicate authentically with the core audience in cycling, and also take us to new and more mainstream audiences.”
