Santini team up with Boels-Dolmans Cycling team

From 2017 Santini will be the technical partner to the prestigious Dutch-registered Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team.

The Italian technical cycling clothing manufacturer, Santini Maglificio Sportivo, is to dress the talented Dutch Boels-Dolmans women’s UCI team from 2017.

The first contact between Santini and the team was made in 2016 when the former supplied the leader jersey for Lizzie Armistead during the Women’s World Tour.

Paola Santini, Santini’s marketing manager, said: “It is extremely important for us to be able to count on one of the strongest teams on the Women’s World Tour as it will help us to develop and test our women’s products.”

Yvo Hoppers, Boels Rental marketing manager, said: “We have found a fantastic new partner in Santini, who is also the clothing supplier to the UCI.

“Santini’s products and service are rooted in their passion for the sport. We’re very pleased to work with them for the next two seasons.”

The Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team was founded in 2012 and comprises 11 athletes of different nationalities who, over the last four years, won 41 races and became the number one ranked team at the end of the 2016 season.

Members include great champions like Armistead, who won the women’s world championships road race in Richmond, Virginia in 2015, and Amalie Dideriksen, who took the women’s world road race title in Doha in 2016.

Also on the team are Megan Guarnier, who topped the individual rankings of the 2016 Women’s World Tour and is reigning US national road race champion, and Katarzyna Pawlowska, who won the women’s scratch race at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in 2012 and 2013 followed by the points race at the same event in 2016.

The Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team athletes will be wearing top-of-the-range kit from the Santini women’s Custom line.

Santini will also be creating additional items exclusively for the Dutch team, including a time trial speedsuit.
