Tinkoff-Saxo presents new technical sponsor SUPRABEAM
tinkoff-saxonew We are happy to have a new sponsor onboard Tinkoff-Saxo. SUPRABEAM is a Danish company that designs innovative high-end LED torches and head lights. SUPRABEAM will supply Tinkoff-Saxo and our mechanics with their products, such as the V3r head light, to ensure optimum work conditions throughout the day.

SUPRABEAM began their sponsorship at the start of this year’s Tour de France. During the long Grand Tours, mechanics and technical staff often work until late in the evening to prepare all material including bikes and cars for the stage to come.

“We’re often working when it’s dark outside in the parking lot by the truck. So the V3r is really helpful since the light beam is so bright and concentrated. I wear it on my head and it points wherever I look. My hands are my main tools, so it’s important that I have them at my disposal”, says Christophe Desimpelaere, mechanic on the team since 1998.

According to Claus Lindholm-Olsen, International Sales Director, SUPRABEAM welcomes the partnership and looks forward to working with a team in the World Tour.

“We’re excited about working with the professional team of mechanics and providing Tinkoff-Saxo with the best lights to achieve the best results. We hope this partnership will help Tinkoff-Saxo in their pursuit for great results in Tour de France and in many races to come”, says Claus Lindholm-Olsen.
