Australian UCI WorldTour cycling team Orica-BikeExchange has entered into a partnership with Italian cycling apparel brand Giordana.
The length of the agreement, which also covers the Orica-AIS women’s outfit, was not disclosed, although the team said the deal would cover the 2017 season “and beyond”.
Under the agreement, Giordana will supply both teams with racing and training wear.
“Our new FormaRed-Carbon Pro line will make up the core of the kits we supply the team,” Giordana founder Giorgio Andretta said. “It’s our new, top of the line collection with a diverse range of garments for racing and training. Our goal with FR-C Pro was to set the bar high in regards to innovation and performance to handle any riding condition throughout the year.
“Moving forward, we will continue to evolve the Giordana range with the feedback we garner from partnering with the Orica-BikeExchange teams.”
