After similar announcements by main sponsors Skil and Shimano, equipment and Dutch co-sponsor Koga-Miyata followed with news of its decision to continue its sponsorship of the Skil-Shimano cycling team over the next two seasons.
"We are very satisfied with the team's performances and exposure over the past two years," said Koga marketing manager Ruud de Vries. "In a short space of time the team has developed enormously and is now a highly professional and well-liked team with a unique personality all of its own. We expect that development to steadily continue and Koga would like to contribute to that."
The team has ridden Koga's Scandium road bikes for two years now. In the near future, Koga has plans for further bike development with the team.
