Team VIRTU Cycling becomes Team Waoo
Team VIRTU Cycling’s continental team changes name to Team Waoo when PostNord Tour of Denmark is kicked off with a 218 kilometer long stage starting in Aalborg on Wednesday, first of August. VIRTU Cycling Group has partnered up with Waoo, which offers fiber broadband, TV, telephony and mobile telephony.
Team owner, Bjarne Riis, says:
“I’m very pleased to announce that we have signed an agreement with Waoo for the rest of the season starting in PostNord Tour of Denmark. Waoo has been a dedicated partner for some time in connection with, among other things, Chasing Cancellara powered by Waoo. They are obviously very motivated to become part of the sport and from this season, they also sponsor the youth jersey in PostNord Tour of Denmark. With this agreement we get a passionate partner who, like us, is occupied about speed and we are very pleased to share our passion for the sport with them. “
CEO at Waoo, Jørgen Stensgaard, comments:
“As a company, we find Bjarne Riis’ and VIRTU’s plans and high ambitions for a new bicycle team, which will participate in the world’s largest bicycle race very appealing. First and foremost, the exciting initiative that matches Waoo is to be ambitious and innovative, which are just some of our primary forces. Next, cycling is, similar to handball, where we are also engaged, a national sport that has grown by and interests many in the broad Danish population – also in the local areas. Right here, we can reach many of our current and potential customers, while supporting a sport that is a strong TV product we can deliver to our customers. ”
The agreement is valid from the first stage of PostNord Tour of Denmark through the rest of the season.
