Grocery store chain Tigros will be a co-sponsor for Liquigas in the next two seasons. Tigros entered the world of cycling in 2007, with Ivan Basso.
"Ivan ... represents the strength that characterizes our territory and our daily operations," said General Director Paolo Orrigoni.
The chain was founded in 1979 and is located in three provinces, with a total of 60 stores. "Now we can extend the cooperation to his new team, Liquigas, the symbol of serenity, competitiveness and it is also very Italian; we will work together to always confirm these values," said Orrigoni.
Team Manager Roberto Amadio confirmed the collaboration for the next couple of years. "We expect an ambitious and richly satisfying season in 2009. Tigros will be in the first line with us."
