November 25, 2015 – The French World Tour Cycling Team AG2R La Mondiale, which includes Canada’s Hugo Houle on its roster, and ONE WAY Sport OY are proud to announce its partnership for textiles. AG2R’s new clothing partner from 2016 has a distribution in 30 countries Worldwide. ONE WAY will provide the team with all high performance cycling apparel as well as casual clothing, bag collection and other equipment.
Team Manager Vincent Lavenu of AG2R La Mondiale was delighted with the arrival of the ONE WAY brand:
“I knew ONE WAY as supplier of many national teams, the French Biathlon and Nordic Teams and several athletes. During the last Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, 49 medal winners wore ONE WAY apparel and products. It convinced me of the quality of their products. Our first friendly contacts with the company as well as their willingness to customize the clothing according to each rider’s unique demands facilitated our partnership easily. After our successful years 2014 and 2015 we want to aim even higher for the coming seasons, but riders will only perform when all material is perfect. That’s why we have chosen ONE WAY. Our riders just deserve the best,” explains Vincent Lavenu.
Also, for ONE WAY it is a special moment:
“We were impressed by the results of Team AG2R La Mondiale in the classics as well as in the Tour de France. For our company, after having reached the top in Nordic Sports including the partnership with the French Nordic Ski Federation, it is an ambition to grow in cycling. As France is one of our key markets we arrived logically at Team AG2R La Mondiale. They know that we will not only give them top quality, but also will collaborate with them every day to adjust our product to fulfill the needs of the team. The feedback from the team’s leaders Romain Bardet and Alexis Vuillermoz and the other riders will make our product even better than it already is. It is great to work with some of the world’s best cyclists, directors and staff and to know that they like our products. Our partnership will enable ONE WAY to develop products to an even higher standard,” says Andreas Bennert, CEO ONE WAY Sport OY.
