my Travel Cash sponsors GB Snowboard Cross Champion Kyle Wise
my Travel Cash, provider of prepaid MasterCard® currency cards, has announced its 12 month sponsorship of Great British Snowboard Cross Athlete, Kyle Wise.
Ranked the UK’s number two male, Scotland’s number one and 163rd in the world*, Kyle has established himself as a Snowboard Cross Athlete at both continental and international level.
After a successful third season on the GB Snowboard Cross Team, the sponsorship sees my Travel Cash supporting Kyle during a significant year where he will compete upon the FIS World Cup Circuit and is a hopeful for the World Snowboard Championships in Austria.
The remainder of the winter season will see Kyle entering both the Europa Cups at Puy St Vincent, France and the Europa Cup Finals in Lenk, Switzerland; before entering the British, Swiss and French National Championships.
In the summer Kyle will compete in the British and English Indoor championships where he will be looking to defend his titles.
Kyle will then focus on competing at Europa Cup level competitions, further establishing himself at a continental level, and is a strong candidate to be selected to represent Great Britain in the FIS World Snowboard Cross Championships in Austria in January 2015.
Originally from Norfolk, now living between Edinburgh and Morzine in the French Alps where he is based with the British Snowboard Cross Team, Kyle said of the sponsorship: “Having been a customer of my Travel Cash for a number of years it was the natural choice for me when I first began looking for sponsors. I regularly use the Euro Currency Card and Multi-Currency Card, which provide an easy way to carry money and avoid unexpected charges when I’m travelling.
“Currently members of the British Snowboard Cross Team do not receive any government funding, so support from companies such as my Travel Cash is incredibly valuable. I’m delighted to have their backing for the coming year and I’m really looking forward to a successful 2014.”
Myles Stephenson, CEO of my Travel Cash, said: “Kyle is a talented athlete, as evidenced by his achievements to date, and we are delighted to be providing him with our support as he continues to represent Great Britain during what will no doubt be an exciting year for his snowboarding career.
“As an athlete who travels the world for his sport, Kyle is a fantastic example of what our cards are designed for and perfect fit for our brand. my Travel Cash Cards help travellers, like Kyle, to secure a great exchange rate every time, with no ATM fees**, 1% cashback, Chip & PIN protection and 24/7 customer support.
“From all here at my Travel Cash, we wish Kyle the very best of luck in 2014.”
