December 22, 2016 (Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, QC) – As a new Olympic cycle begins, Garneau® and Cycling Canada are pleased to announce that their long-term partnership, now in its 32nd year, will extend to the Tokyo Olympic & Paralympic Games in 2020. Garneau® will continue to provide competition clothing for the Canadian National Team in road and track cycling, mountain bike and BMX for all Olympic and Paralympic events. Team Canada will also wear Garneau® clothing in all international competitions during the next four years.
Garneau® and Cycling Canada will continue to strengthen their collaborative partnership over the next four years with the creation of the Podium 2020 committee. This group will include apparel specialists from Garneau® who will work closely with research, development and technical experts from Cycling Canada as well as other National Team performance partners such as Alphamantis. Together, they will develop the world’s most aerodynamic and best-fitting technical apparel for every cycling event in Tokyo.
“This long-term partnership is one of the best things that could have ever happened to my company,” said Founder, Designer and President Louis Garneau. “Heading to the Rio Games, we put all of our expertise into helping the Canadian team and we won two medals at the Olympics and nine medals at the Paralympics. There is still so much to do with Cycling Canada. Our team’s motivation is at its highest level knowing that we are now on the road to Tokyo.”
