Colorado Springs, CO (CN) – After a great performance in the Tour de France where Garmin-Cervelo’s Tommy D finished 9th overall, some now consider him as the team leader going into this week’s USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado. A Colorado native – living in Durango – Tommy D was once described as the next hope for American cycling and even considered to be the next Lance Armstrong. So it is no surprise that new sponsors have been flocking to the very popular and newest celebrity in American cycling. Chamois News staff, like always, were the first to hear and report on Tommy D’s newest sponsor.
Sunny Delight Beverage Co. – maker of Sunny D juice blends – has stepped forward and created a new brand of enhanced juice drinks called “Tommy D”. The new drink will carry the same B1 and vitamin C values and the additional Calcium that the existing EnhancedD products carry but with new labeling and promotional efforts.
Sunny Delight Beverage Co. released a statement expressing their excitement and continued commitment to delivering a tangy and enjoyable drink with the nutritional elements kids need. “We are very excited to support Tommy D, his cycling talents and boyish good looks. We even share the same name.”
At the time of the interview we didn’t mention to Sunny D representatives that Tom’s last name is actually Danielson, not D.
