SANTINI AND CYCLING AUSTRALIA: MORE THAN JUST A SPONSORSHIP
We have been the exclusive clothing partner to Cycling Australia since 2001. This highly successful collaboration that is full of synergies, is looking forward to the next exciting technical project for the upcoming four year Olympic period. A project based in Australia, which can no longer be considered up-and-coming in the cycling world, but a place bursting with cycling talent at the highest level.
The renewal of the collaboration between Santini and Cycling Australia, in which the Italian company serves as primary partner to the Australian Cycling Federation, fosters shared growth in the areas of product development and technological innovation.
«The relationship with Cycling Australia represents an important chapter in not only our company history, but also our family history. We are extremely proud to have collaborated with the federation from 2001 up to today - said Monica Santini, Santini Managing Director - the main focus of this sponsorship is for the research and development of top range products, created exclusively for the Elite Australian athletes».
«We’ve had an extremely fruitful 15 year relationship with Santini and look forward to maintaining the momentum through the Gold Coast 2018 and Tokyo 2020 - said Nicholas Green, Cycling Australia CEO – and this partnership runs deeper than just the jerseys on the backs of our riders, we see Santini as one of our technological and innovation partners. Whether it’s giving our athletes the extra percentage benefits on the bike, to clothing for our valued staff including coaches and commissaires, we are pleased we are able to continue the journey with Santini».
In addition to providing the official technical clothing to the National Team and the Cycling Australia HPU (High Performance Unit), Santini will also provide casual clothing for the HPU, and uniforms for the support staff and the federation officials.
Santini clothing will be worn by athletes of all disciplines, from Road Cycling to Track Cycling, from Mountain Bike to BMX and Cyclo-Cross as well as para-cycling and juniors. The Men’s Road under 23 and Women’s National team will also use Santini racewear. The famed green and gold jersey will be awarded to our elite national champions throughout the world, and Santini will also be the jersey of choice for the Subaru National Road Series champions.
The Santini Cycling Australia partnership is a remarkable example of a project based on innovation that can flourish and grow even when the members are on opposite sides of the planet.
