Team Sponsorship 17/18
« on: May 16, 2017, 10:10 »
Time to start a thread for the team & sponsorship changes that are currently in the works.

First up: #murias go ProConti! :cool


They just held a press conference, there'll be more news about this later in the day.

    "The spirit of Basque cycling can be a great reflection of the way our companies work and that is what we want to show the world," said team officials.

    "Anyone who wants to join our project, to contact us because all initiatives are welcome," they have concluded.

    I could be wrong, but it sounds like they are still after money. :P

    They have been saying for a couple of years that they wanted to go PCT. Now that has changed from speculative to definitive - Is it just a brazen attempt to flush out sponsors? Getting Guillen to say they would get a Vuelta wildcard is good marketing, but I think most folks would assume that would have been the case anyway.

    More details needed.

    Sounds a bit like it, yes.

    More details needed.
    I think that they're not so stupid to go out and announce a ProConti team if they don't have the funds for that (at the most basic level). More money to get the team to a higher level is then always welcome.

    Irish cycling has been dealt a massive blow with news that An Post is abruptly ending all of its cycling sponsorship deals.

    The national postage company, which is struggling financially, has confirmed on the eve of the Rás it will no longer sponsor the event.

    And it is also pulling out of Rás na mBan and the An Post-Chainreaction Continental-level trade team.

    The withdrawal was anticipated because of the company’s own difficulties.

    Some good news for a change:
    http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/952/Wielrennen/article/detail/3193345/2017/06/27/Lefevere-flikt-het-zijn-team-blijft-ook-de-komende-vier-seizoenen-in-het-peloton.dhtml
    Lefèvere's team will continue for another four years, says Het Laatste Nieuws.
    Specialized has signed on for that period, as have Quick Step and Lidl. They may get another title sponsor yet, or Bakala may foot the rest of the bill.

    Burgos to go PCT? 1.7 million doesn't sound a lot and would they get a Vuelta invite?

    http://www.tuttobiciweb.it/2017/06/29/102692/biesse-carrera-gavardo-continental

    A possible new Italian CT team Biesse-Carrera-Gavardo or the BCG as I'm calling them.

    Wow, they really dug up an ancient photo there! :o
    Caja Rural, Euskadi, now Burgos - looks like the dearth in Spanish cycling is over. :cool

    Basically one of the Italian 'amateur' teams getting a Conti license.

    http://cyclingpro.net/spaziociclismo/ciclomercato/nippo-fantini-rinnovo-biennale-sponsor-canola/

    Two more years (plus the option of another) for Vini Fantini.

    http://cyclingpro.net/spaziociclismo/ciclomercato/ciclomercato-nuova-squadra-coquard-trentin/
    http://www.directvelo.com/actualite/59589/une-nouvelle-equipe-pro-francaise-en-2018

    Details about Jerome Pineau's new team.

    • Vital Concept will be the main partner
    • VC Pays de Loudéac the feeder team
    • Initial plan is 3 years at PCT level
    • Twenty riders - French and foreign
    • Names linked include Coquard, Trentin, Morice and Le Bon

    It's been very quiet on the new team front. No Euskadi-Murias rumours (not that surprising I think) or anything on Contador's team.

    Poached the main sponsor from #fortuneo ... that'll make for some bad blood, I'd say.

    #jumbo present a new main main sponsor tomorrow, a 'serious new partner'. Will increase team budget.

    HP BTP-Auber 93 -----------> Saint-Michel-Auber 93

    Looking to go PCT in 2019.

    :o
    Poached the main sponsor from #fortuneo ... that'll make for some bad blood, I'd say.

    ..... and if they get Coquard, they'll probably poach their TdF wildcard as well.

    Friesland Campina
    Or rather, Friesland Campina's brand Vifit Sport:
    https://www.teamlottojumbo.nl/cycling-news/-three-year-commitment-between-frieslandcampina-brand-vifit-sport-and-cycling-team-lottonljumbo

    Doesn't sound like quite as big a sponsorship as I first thought, 'only' a new logo placed somewhere on the jersey and some new products for the riders to eat. Not a title sponsorship at any rate.

    After Androni Gioccatoli, Sidermec have now also extended their sponsorship of Savio's team.

    Slipstream announces Oath as exclusive digital media sponsor for 2018 Cannondale-Drapac Pro Cycling Team.
    Whatever "digital media sponsor" means.

    Oath is the newly-formed parent company of AOL, Yahoo etc.
