By supporting the federation, we contribute to youth promotion and the development of the sport of cycling among the broader population, which positively affects people’s health.”

President of Swiss Cycling, Richard Chassot, added: “For Swiss Cycling this new commitment is essential and ensures the future of the sport in Switzerland.”
Swiss Cycling has also announced that Cornèrcard and ŠKODA have extended and enhanced their sponsorships and are now Partners of the organisation.
