Santini to be new TdS jersey partner
«In its long history stretching back to 1933, the Tour de Suisse has hosted some of the biggest names in cycling history, which is why it’s often called the ‘fourth tour’. And the Tour de Suisse shares our company’s huge love of and passion for cycling!» said Monica Santini, CEO of Santini Cycling Wear, at the contract signing.
The Tour de Suisse is very happy to have found such a strong partner for our leader jerseys in Santini. «We are very proud of this partnership, which is part of a long tradition of partnerships with international recognition», says Olivier Senn, TdS General Director. The traditional Italian brand has years of experience in providing various leader jerseys for a number of international grand tours, including the legendary UCI rainbow jersey.
Santini Cycling Wear has signed a three-year contract with InfrontRingier AG, the organiser of the Tour de Suisse, and will present the new jerseys in the spring. In addition to the yellow leader jersey, Santini will also fit out the leaders of the points classification, the mountains classification and the best Swiss rider.
Santini is looking forward to providing apparel for the leaders of the TdS Challenge in addition to those for the Tour de Suisse itself. For the first time, there will also be a line of merchandise available: two special jerseys will each be dedicated to a stage of the Tour de Suisse. Like all of Santini’s products, all TdS jerseys will be exclusively produced in Italy, and will be available from May.
