Festina, the watch brand synonymous with cycling, will be partnering with the Revolution Series for the 2015/2016 season as the Official Timing Partner.
The announcement comes on the back of the successful partnership between the two companies that was formed over the last two rounds of last season.
Festina’s relationship with cycling stretches back 20 years and in that time it has sponsored the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and La Vuelta a España.
Daniel Ozel, from Festina’s UK distributor Unique Jewelry, said: “Festina watches are delighted to continue our partnership with Revolution. Festina is synonymous with cycling and the cycling watch of choice. We are looking forward to supporting the event across the season as they visit Derby, Manchester, London and Glasgow.
Ozel also proudly pointed out that Festina is the key watch brand in the Grand Tours too. “Festina is the official timekeeper for all of the Grand Tours as well as The Tour of Britain, Women’s Tour and Tour Series here in the UK.”
James Pope, CEO of FACE Partnership, owners of the series, said: “Having Festina as a partner at the end of last season, we have formed a great relationship that we are excited to develop into the new season. With Round 1 in Derby soon upon us, featuring riders such as Sir Bradley Wiggins, the Festina brand most certainly matches the scale of the event that we have created.”
