Boardman Bikes has announced that it will act as the official sponsor of the ONE Pro Cycling team for the next three years.
The UK based team – which competes at UCI Continental level – joins forces with the high profile bike brand to take the team into its third year.
The team aero advantage riders will race on the Boardman Air 9.8, whilst the Boardman TTE 9.8 will be utilised for time trials; all training will take place on SLR Race 9.8 models.
Boardman Bikes managing director Andy Smallwood commented: “Following our success at the very highest level across other cycling disciplines, it’s great to see Boardman back where it belongs at the front of the Pro Road Peloton.
“With ONE Pro Cycling, we have a partner that shares our passion and drive for success. This collaboration between Britain’s premier bike brand and domestically focused race team showcases everything that is great about British cycle sport”.
The Boardman frames will be complimented with Shimano Dura Ace Di2 groupsets. FSA and Vision will also feature as official technical partners to the team, with FSA supplying drive train components including power meters and cockpit for road bikes. Vision will provide Metron 44 and 55 wheels along with TT aero bars.
ONE Pro Cycling’s CEO Matt Prior concluded: “I’m delighted to welcome Boardman as ONE Pro Cycling’s official bike sponsor. From our initial meetings I was hugely impressed by the way they operated and their vision for the future. This is a brand that is clearly heading in the right direction and doing it the right way.
“I am thoroughly looking forward to working with Chris and all the staff at Boardman. To be working with a British bike brand is something I’ve always wanted for ONE Pro Cycling and this I’m sure is the start of a very successful relationship for both parties.”
