Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team is pleased to announce the contract extension of Bigla for a further two years through 2020. The leading Swiss supplier of integrated room concepts for modern working environments and comprehensive solutions for care and hospital facilities looks back on a long tradition as a supporter of women’s cycling.
The team welcomes the news as it shows the long-term vision and consistency of a partner such as Bigla.

“For us, this is what a true partnership is,” Team manager, Thomas Campana said. “We are so inspired by Bigla’s vision and long-term support. This is exactly what women’s cycling needs, partners who are in it for the long-term as they look to create change. Sustainability is how we will achieve success as we are a team passionate about the development of athletes from a young age through to maturity. We understand this doesn’t happen overnight and we’re really pleased to work with partners like Bigla who’ve enabled this success over the years.”
Bigla's delegate of the board, Monika Loeffel-Boesch said: “We`re very happy to have the team carry our name. The team has consistently shown innovation and excellence and been at the highest level of professional cycling in the world. It mimics what we as a company stands for which is continually looking at ways for improving. We’re looking forward to continuing this partnership over the next two years.”
With Bigla’s support the past years, the team has been on the podium of several World Tour races and claimed the bronze medal in the world team time trial championships for the last two years. The team’s ethos is to create an environment that sees talented athletes come in and reach their potential to world-class people.
