Campagnolo announces partnership with BMC Switzerland, supplying AG2R CITROËN TEAM.
Campagnolo is pleased to announce its partnership with premium Swiss manufacturer BMC, in supplying AG2R CITROËN TEAM, formerly Team AG2R La Mondiale, for the 2021 season.
The French WorldTour team, as well as its U23 squad, will ride with Campagnolo’s Super Record EPS disc brake groupset fitted to BMC’s Teammachine SLR01 throughout the upcoming 2021 racing calendar.
AG2R CITROËN TEAM’s BMC bikes will also benefit from Campagnolo’s full range of Bora WTO and Bora Ultra disc wheels, completing an all-Italian drivetrain and wheelset package for the team.
Pro team partnerships are a source of pride but also provide opportunities for valuable feedback from riders.
BMC is a brand that shares a great deal with Campagnolo – a pursuit of innovation, a desire to produce distinctive and premium products, but most importantly, a passion and commitment to cycle racing.
“We are very happy to have Campagnolo with us for 2021. Campagnolo is renowned in the cycling world for its performance products, its racing heritage and love for the sport. Combining such an excellent brand with our new bike partner BMC gives me great confidence as we head into a new chapter for the AG2R CITROËN TEAM.” added Managing Director Vincent Lavenu.
