Sigma Sports announced as official supplier of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships

London, England - Sigma Sports has today been announced as an official supplier of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire. The partnership will see the UK’s leading road cycling retailer join forces with cycling’s world governing body the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) across a range of activities in the build up to and during this year’s events in Yorkshire.

The UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire is set to be one of the biggest events in the UK sporting calendar in 2019 and Sigma Sports’ Managing Director, Ian Whittingham is delighted to be part of this iconic event, "We’ve got a rich history in supporting cycle sport, from our early days supporting the likes of Bradley Wiggins, to owning and running our own UCI Continental Team. To now be working alongside the UCI at one of cycling’s pinnacle events of the year is a huge honor for everyone involved at Sigma Sports".

The UCI are equally excited about the opportunity to work with one of the UK’s most respected international cycling clothing online retail platform. UCI President David Lappartient said: "We are delighted by this partnership with Sigma Sports, a cycling retailer that is well-known with enthusiasts of our sport in Great Britain and that will propose fans with a range of Santini products carrying the famous UCI rainbow stripes."

The partnership will run across a number of areas and Sigma Sports Head of Marketing Calvin Cox sees this as another key marker in the continued growth of cycling in the UK. "The UCI Road World Championships is going to be another landmark for cycling in the UK, bringing the same level of excitement and reach as the London 2012 Olympic cycling events to a part of the UK that has well and truly fallen in love with the sport." The opportunity for Sigma Sports to continue to grow awareness of their brand is clear, as Cox explains, "We’ve traditionally been very well known in the South East of the UK, this iconic event provides a vehicle for us to share the Sigma Sports story with a new audience of passionate cyclists in the heart of Yorkshire and beyond".

Fans will be able to purchase their official UCI Road World Championships Mito National kit by Santini from Sigma Sports website shortly with a range of official Santini products also available from the UK’s leading road cycling retailer.
