Team Nippo-Provence-PTS Conti unveil kit for debut season

Team Nippo-Provence-PTS Conti have unveiled their kit for their debut season in 2021. The Swiss-based team is managed by Marcello Albasini and was set up by former professional Robbie Hunter's sports management company ProTouchGlobal.

The squad shares sponsors with the EF Education First-Nippo squad and will also race on Cannondale bikes like the WorldTour outfit.

The pink and navy colours of the Nippo-Provence-PTS Conti kit also echo those of EF Education First-Nippo, while the jersey also bears the Argyle pattern that previously featured through the various iterations of Slipstream Sports.

Nippo-Provence-PTS Conti will have a 12-rider squad for 2021, with former Katusha professional Matvey Mamykin the most high-profile rider on the roster. The Russian is joined by riders from Switzerland, France, Poland, Norway, Ethiopia.

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.
