Cervélo TestTeam has added clothing company Castelli as a sponsor for the 2009 season.
"We are very excited and honored to have Castelli as a partner in Cervélo TestTeam," said Gerard Vroomen co-founder of Cervélo. "They have a rich history, but also focus on product innovation. In fact, they beat us to the TestTeam concept by over 50 years when they provided the legendary Fausto Coppi with revolutionary silk jerseys to wear in time trials."
Steve Smith, director of marketing at Castelli, said, "Castelli will provide technical race clothing to the men's and women's race teams. Clothing for us is not decorative, it is equipment. With Castelli's pioneering development in the lightest and most aerodynamic clothing in the professional peloton, the Cervélo TestTeam members will have an advantage in their clothing as they have in the rest of their equipment. Castelli is also committed to anti-doping efforts, and we feel that this team shares our dream of seeing cycling cleaned from this scourge."
