Cycling Team Velo Club La Grange Gets Apparel Sponsor

October 24, 2011

Athletic apparel company, Castelli US, has partnered with Velo Club La Grange a professional cycling team to be their official team uniform and apparel outfitter.

La Grange selected Castelli after an exhaustive search for a high quality clothing brand that would best be able to meet the needs of a large cycling club that consists of a wide range of riders, from novice to semi-pro.

Under the terms of the sponsorship agreement Castelli will provide premium products for the club, its teams and key events for both on and off the bike. The team will also have access to the new San Remo Speedsuit.

Also the Velo Club La Grange logo and imagery where applicable in Castelli marketing materials and industry trade shows where commercially practical.

A key factor in the selection was Castelli’s passion for the cycling culture as a whole and its alignment with Velo Club La Grange’s vision for its future.

Velo Club La Grange is one of California’s largest and oldest cycling clubs with over 400 members. Raymond Fouquet founded the club in 1969 and today the club fields one of the top amateur racing teams in the United States. Past members include Tour de France stage winner Max Sciandri, Olympic gold medalist Steve Hegg as well as professionals Tony Cruz and Jonathan Cantwell.
