So far 2016 has been a year of mixed fortune for WJ Groundwater-sponsored cycle squad Team Frankie’s. One of the biggest changes is the reduced racing calendar. However, the team continues to grow apace and nowadays it has a healthy mix of locals and ex-pats from across a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
A very Merry Christmas to all our friends, valued customers and suppliers from the entire WJ Groundwater team.
We hope that you all have an enjoyable and relaxed holiday break.
Please note the our offices will be closed from Christmas Eve until we re-open on 4 January.
See you in the new year and here’s to an excellent 2016!

Extraordinary tales of ordinary cyclists.
Rare are the sports where professional athletes compete against amateurs. A football match between Manchester United and that local middle-aged Dad’s team is virtually unheard of, yet in the world of cycling this does happen. The Tour of Sharjah that takes place in the UAE is one such event where this occurs. It is a battle between David and Goliath, only here, Goliath is guaranteed to win.
Once again, WJ Groundwater-sponsored Team Frankie’s formed a motivated squad of talented amatueur cyclists. In-house members counted: Levi Angelo Denys, David Williams, Youcef (Paul) Cummings, Neil and Richard who were joined by guest rider Bader Thani, the former Arabian Sprint Champion.
WJ-sponsored cycling team Team Frankie’s continue their quest for road domination. Middle East Director, Paul Turner is a stalwart of the team and was instrumental in setting up the sponsorship deal between Team Frankie’s and WJ Groundwater. There are a number of keen cyclists in the company including WJ’s Managing Director, Richard Fielden. Check out our extensive article in Issue 27 of our in-house magazine, The Wet End, here.
