Sanchez wins stage 4 of the Tour of the Alps, Siutsou best in Croatia: Daily News Digest
Responding to a whistleblower’s claim to BikeBiz that the Chain Reaction company was in meltdown, Wiggle-CRC has rejected the suggestion. “We do not recognise this representation of our business when the reality is significantly different,” it said in a statement.
“We have committed to building a world-class, global business in multi-sports, and the merger with CRC, and the more recent acquisition of Bike24,are important elements of that growth strategy. In addition, we have made substantial capital investment in the business which in the last two years has totalled over £40m.
“We have stayed true to our commitment to retain the CRC brand and distinct customer proposition, and remain committed to Northern Ireland. Since the merger we have invested in Northern Ireland, bringing disparate teams in multiple locations into new offices in Mallusk, improving both the working environment and facilitating greater sharing of knowledge.”
