Shimano is also sponsoring three women's teams, Farm-Frites, Nurnberger and the Vlaanderen T interim.
"But these are not the only teams you will see on Shimano components. Many others have also chosen our components and will help us to test and develop our current and future Shimano components," said Shimano Europe's PR officer, Eduard Aguilera.
Team Titch is a one-man 24-hour MTB event specialist.
