PRESS RELEASE:Ã‚Â ÃÂ¸PA -my choice- Cycle Collection is now available in shops.Ã‚Â World Champion Irina Kalentieva believes that fashion and sportÃ‚Â can go hand in hand, however Ã¢â‚¬Å“when I looked at what wasÃ‚Â available for women cyclists, all I could see was a lot of blandÃ‚Â samenessÃ¢â‚¬Â. With this in mind, Kalentieva has been working onÃ‚Â her own line of clothing.Ã‚Â Backed by Ergon and an external design team, Irina has realisedÃ‚Â her ideas this past year, and the result is a stunning range ofÃ‚Â womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sports clothing. The details are obvious in not only theÃ‚Â athletic cut and many sports influenced elements, but also withÃ‚Â the inclusion of KalentievaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s own signatureÃ‚Â ÃÂ¸PAÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œmy choice-.Ã‚Â ÃÂ¸PAÃ‚Â being the Cyrillic spelling of IRA, her nickname.
The product line was first presented at Eurobike 2009, and now itÃ‚Â is exclusively available from www.fitinstyle.de.Ã‚Â Fitinstyle is a German company specialising in high qualityÃ‚Â sportswear for women. The focus is on quality, style andÃ‚Â function. As such they represent the perfect retail partner for theÃ‚Â new clothing line Ã¢â‚¬â€œ offering the complete range of jerseys, tops,Ã‚Â t-shirts and jackets.
