The new sponsorship, that covers both racing and training wear, will ensure the Australian teams are supported with top of the range garments from a proven cycling provider whilst also benefitting from the company’s innovative approach, ensuring a top performance product.
“We are really excited to forge a partnership with Giordana,” general manager Shayne Bannan said. “They have supported the sport of cycling for a long time and with a proven record in quality and performance, we are looking forward to working with them into the future.”
“We are confident that both our men and women will enjoy the benefits of Giordana’s new product line as we work together to provide them the optimum support for success on the road.”
Giordana has enjoyed ongoing successes with professional teams and events since the 1980's. A former supplier to Le Tour De France, Giordana is one of a small number of brands still made in Italy. It is also part of an even smaller group of cycling clothing manufacturers who actually develop and make their products in their own factory.
“We are thrilled to be aligned with ORICA-Scott,” Giorgio Andretta, founder of Giordana, stated.
“We have developed an entirely new line of garments to help the athletes perform at their best.
“Our new FormaRed-Carbon® Pro (FR-C® Pro) line will make up the core of the kits we supply the team. It’s our new, top of the line collection with a diverse range of garments for racing and training. Our goal with FR-C Pro was to set the bar high in regards to innovation and performance to handle any riding condition throughout the year.
“Moving forward, we will continue to evolve the Giordana range with the feedback we garner from partnering with the ORICA-Scott teams.”
