We are excited to announce a new addition to the RIDE office. Luke Davison has joined our small team in Sydney as Sales and Marketing Manager. The 26-year-old is a reigning world champion, one of the riders who won the gold medal at the worlds in London in March this year but he has decided it’s time to pursue a different career.
“I couldn’t be happier to announce that I will become part of the RIDE family,” said Luke on his first day in the office.
“Competitive cycling has been a part of my life for 15 years and it’s an incredible opportunity to join a company so close to my passion.”
Davison has a long history in cycling and has enjoyed success on both the road and track. In 2012, he was the winner of Cycling Australia’s National Road Series. It was on the track that he earned a rainbow jersey but he has experienced racing at all levels on the road as well.
In 2014, he spent several months with BMC Racing as a stagiaire and while he enjoyed the experience, Luke has decided to enjoy riding his bike and continue his cycling career as part of RIDE Media, publishers of RIDE Cycling Review and the Official Tour de France Guide (Australian Edition).
“I’m eager to make a positive impact on the magazine with my enthusiasm and excitement,” he said.
“Rob Arnold and I met to discuss what the future may hold and we believe that there is a great match: a job that allows me to be part of the cycling community as I begin the next phase of my professional life.
“Rob’s insight into cycling is invaluable and I’m looking forward to seeing RIDE and beginning my new career.”
The role is a diverse one that will see Luke manage advertising sales for our magazines and online activity. He joins a team of four others at RIDE Media HQ. It’s a small team but we make big magazines about the world’s most beautiful sport.
