Title sponsor extends with women’s cycling team

Hospital care and office furniture manufacturer Bigla has extended its title sponsorship agreement with women’s cycling team Cervélo Bigla.

The two-year renewal will cover the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Bigla serves as co-title sponsor of the Swiss team alongside bicycle frame manufacturer Cervélo.

“Bigla has inspired us for many years because they had the vision to grow women’s cycling over a decade ago,” team manager Thomas Campana said. “We could go so far as to say Bigla is women’s cycling. The list of athletes they have supported over the years is incredible.

“If you go onto what the riders have achieved, it inspires us to get out of bed every day and build a really special project to honour Bigla and our other partners. We want to thank (Bigla founder) Fritz Boesch and (Bigla owner) Monika Loeffel-Boesch. Bigla is not just a partner, it stands for women’s cycling.”

Cervélo Bigla has picked up eight victories during the 2016 season and a further 18 podium finishes.
