Monday, the 11th of July 2016, the first day of rest during the 2016 Tour De France and one day after the incredible win by Tom Dumoulin, it has been announced that Sunweb will become the main sponsor for Team Giant. The touroperator has signed a contract for the minimum duration of three years, starting January the first of 2017.
Sunweb has initiated their partnership with team Giant-Alpecin in early 2015. Starting January the first 2017, they will be the main sponsor and will name the team accordingly. The former sponsor Alpecin has made a transfer to Team Katusha.
“We are very proud to be able to combine our strengths with Sunweb. We think that this will be one of the most fruitful and best fitting partnerships that we have ever realized”, according to team manager Iwam Spekenbrink. “We have a shared dream and vision for the future. Sunweb will support our team fully and is not primarily focused on achieving short-term results. It’s a true partner that is willing to invest in our team. Together we will make the Tour De France 2017 the most successful thus far.”
Elacin Hearing Protection
We are proud to present Elacin Hearing Protection as one of the sponsors for team Sunweb during the 2017 Tour De France. Like in previous years, Elacin will outfit the riders of the team with custom made hearing protection, ER Earphones and the Elacin Relax.
Take a look at what the riders are saying about Elacin:
Laurens ten Dam: „A good nights rest is essential when recovering from hard training!“ In most hotels, where we as a team often stay, there is a lot of activity 24/7. Therefore it can be very difficult to become well rested. With Elacin Relax I can sleep comfortably and wake up well rested, ready for another race and a brand new day!
- Roy Cuvers: Thanks to the Elacin Relax I am no longer bother by my snoring room-mate.
- Simon Geschke: I am not only wearing the Elacin Relax at night, but also during travel. This way I’ll arrive relaxed at my destination.
- Georg Preidler: Listening to my favourite music I do with Elacin ER earphones. They make my surrounding sound less louder and I don’t have to put the volume at its highest.
- Tom Dumoulin: Comfortable on the road, with the Elacin ER earphones.
