The EF Pro Cycling organization announced today it has added NIPPO Corporation as a co-title sponsor, with the US-based WorldTeam racing in 2021 as EF Education-NIPPO.

The Japanese construction and asphalt company had three previous naming rights ventures with its support of professional cycling teams at the Continental level in Europe, the most recent being Nippo Delko One Provence. It also sponsored the NIPPO-Vini Fantini-Faizanè team which began in 2012 and raced three times at the Giro d’Italia. This is the first entrée for the business at the WorldTour level of professional cycling.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
