Team Wiggins in new co-title sponsor deal with Le Col
Team Wiggins, the professional road cycling team founded by Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, has agreed a new co-title sponsorship deal with Le Col, the UK-based clothing brand, meaning that the team will be known as Team Wiggins – Le Col for the coming season.
Le Col was already the kit sponsor of the second-tier UCI Pro Continental team.
Wiggins said: “I’m delighted that Le Col has increased its commitment in working with Team Wiggins – Le Col. Thanks to their commitment and that of the other partners, the team can plan for the future and build on the successes of the 2018 season.
“This has been a hard year for the domestic professional race scene and for Team Wiggins – Le Col to be heading in the opposite direction from that, is great to see.”
Wiggins has taken full ownership of the team after a 40-per-cent stake held by XIX, his previous management company, was recently transferred to him.
