FRANZIA EXECUTIVE CYCLING TEAM WINS ON AND OFF THE COURSE

When a group of executives get together and ride their bike, you expect nothing less than a high-level action-packed race. The hunger for success and competition after all is an innate trait. If there’s something that binds the Franzia Executive Cycling Team, it is that they have a shared love for wine, sports, and a friendship that keeps them riding together. Just as Franzia wine is an easy-to-drink, everyday wine, the Franzia Team was formed to celebrate the daily successes of the executive life.

Team Franzia is composed of forty-four middle-age individuals composed of doctors, business owners, lawyers, and other professions – all successful executives who value health and fitness. Even with their busy schedules, they are able to hold group rides around Metro Manila at least two to three times a week. Road biking keeps them in shape, develops their resistance, endurance, increases their cardiovascular fitness level and metabolism. It is their preferred form of exercise which allows them to manage stress and perform at their best in the work place.

The team has been joining the Tour of Matabungkay since 2010 and this year, Team Franzia won seven trophies. In the Manager’s Category, Jimmy Cadena won Bronze in Stage 1 and Silver in Stage 3, placing him as Overall Silver in the Category. In the same category, Andrew Ang won Silver in Stage 2 and Bronze in Stage 3, placing him as Overall Bronze. Ramoncito Espinosa completes the trophies with his 4th place win in the Age 26 to 35 Category.

Team Captain Jimmy Cadena shares, “The last 5 years of Tour of Matabungkay saw the steady increase in the number of participants due mainly to the significant improvements in the quality of races, level of competitions and accommodations. From its humble beginnings, Team Franzia has evolved into a competitive yet friendly team that other riders have come to admire and appreciate. A lot of riders are wishing to be a part of the Franzia family.”

As Team Franzia, they share the same values of discipline, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and a passion for keeping active. As executives, it is important to strike a balance between career, family, and the sport. Before the race, the team has to be physically and mentally prepared to compete on the grueling three-day race. With 100kms or more ahead, they need the will power, commitment, and motivation, aside from physical fitness. Other tournaments the Franzia Executive Cycling Team have joined include Tour of Friendship in Thailand, Tour of Subic, and Tour of Pines in Baguio to name a few.

Franzia is America’s No. 1 selling wine brand. Founded in 1906 by Giuseppe and Teresa Franzia, the winery is located in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Over 30 million cases of Franzia are sold each year and over 3 million glasses are consumed every day, in the U.S. alone. Franzia wine variants include California Red, Chillable Red, and Sunset Blush in 750ml and 3 Liters. Franzia boasts of a unique packaging as it comes in a Winetap. It has a spout with an inner pouch to prevent oxidation, keeping Franzia fresh for four weeks after opening. The Smart Tap minimizes spillage and provides convenience for several wine occasions. The three liter is equivalent to 4 bottles and makes 24 glasses.

Everybody wants to be part of a team that wins on and off the course. The Franzia Executive Cycling Team ensures that its members celebrate these wins with a wine brand that is a winner in itself.

Franzia is exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation. It is available in all major supermarkets, grocery stores, select restaurants, and bars nationwide.
