First Great Western
First Great Western have been team sponsors since 2010, taking the coveted Watergate Bay trophy in their first year of sponsorship and then loosing out to team Joules. This year they sponsored the Cornwall team on Saturday who rode to victory against the Rest of the World, and also the main event on Sunday where they narrowly missed out to team Joules by one point.
First Great Western is no stranger to this part of Cornwall. A section of their evocative TV advert I’m a Great Westerner, which showcases the stunning destinations we have here in the South West, was filmed in the waves of Watergate Bay. Carrying 1.5 million passengers a week, First Great Western’s network includes Newquay, a short 10 minute drive from the bay.
