Swiss-brand Assos extends clothing deal with USA Cycling

Assos will provide podium jerseys for the 2017 USA National Championship calendar events for cyclocross, mountain, road, and track disciplines.

Assos CEO, Phil Duff said: “We are very happy for this launch because it further shows our joint effort with USA Cycling aimed to grow all levels of racing in the US, and also allows us to connect the Assos brand closer to the end consumer at the development and amateur level.”

Assos partnered with USA Cycling as the official cycling apparel supplier in April 2016 and is to supply clothing through to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, outfitting Team USA Cycling at international cyclocross, mountain bike, road and track competitions.

USA Cycling CEO, Derek Bouchard-Hall said: “We are very pleased to see our partnership with Assos extend to the National Championships in 2017. Thirty-four national titles are at stake at the Cyclocross National Championships in Hartford and we are proud that the winners will receive a best-in-class jersey truly worthy of a national champion.” 

In the UK, Czech brand Kalas supplies the British Cycling team jerseys.
