REMO to Supply Uniforms for International Cycling Union

September 30, 2013

Italian-based REMO will supply the International Cycling Union’s (UCI) official uniforms.

The agreement was signed in Florence, Italy, by new UCI President Brian Cookson and the founder of REMO Martin Havik during the UCI Road World Championships. 

REMO (Recycle Movement) is a guarantee system for recycled products based in Holland. As the “Official UCI Uniform Partner” through until 2017, REMO will provide, through its guaranteed supply chain, the UCI with uniforms for officials working at events across all cycling disciplines and throughout the world. 

As well as being practical and comfortable, the new-look uniforms are made from re-cycled materials. The first ones will be delivered in March 2014. 

UCI Events and Marketing Director Gerrit Middag added: “The UCI is delighted by this new partnership with REMO. We are extremely sensitive to environmental issues and the fact that our officials will now be wearing guaranteed recycled clothing takes our commitment to the environment one step further,” he said. 

Mr Middag said it was particularly fitting that the REMO guarantee label was the brain child of a former professional cyclist, Martin Havik. 

Silvia Mariani, responsible for REMO communication concerning the new partnership, said she was delighted that the UCI had decided to join the REMO project: “Both REMO and the UCI are investing in the future for the next generations,” she said. “The UCI is taking care of its environmental image, and at the same time REMO will benefit from the international exposure of having its clothing worn at events throughout the world.”
