Gazprom and the Russian team Gazprom-RusVelo extended the sponsorship agreement.
The team was founded in 2011 and since 2016 has been backed by the major player on the European energy market — Gazprom. The new sponsorship contract is valid for four years until the end of 2024.
“We value our cooperation with a reliable partner of the team — Gazprom. This year we as probably everyone, have faced unforeseen difficulties, but with the constant support from our title sponsor we managed to keep developing our project. The UCI ProTeam has competed in the maximum possible number of international races. The same applies to our development team, we provided our young Russian riders with an international racing calendar including races such as: Giro d’Italia U23, European and World Road Cycling Championships. The track members of Gazprom-RusVelo who are leaders of the national team and who are among the strongest riders in the world continue preparation for the postponed Olympic Games. The new four-year sponsorship agreement makes us confident in the future of our project” — General manager of Gazprom-RusVelo Renat Khamidulin.
