Ridley has a long history in the professional peloton. Since the the ProTour was founded in 2005, we sponsor a cycling team at the highest level. After some adventures with foreign teams , we have now arrived back at the Belgian Lotto-Belisol team.
The Lotto-Soudal cycling team (www.lottosoudal.be) is a Belgian team. For us at Ridley, the Lotto-Belisol project was a perfect match with our goals. Of course , the riders of the team make maximum use of the high-tech bikes that we make available . They ride on a revolutionary Ridley Noah FAST for the extra punch in the sprint or a Helium SL , the lightweight model in the Ridley range, for climbing. Since the Tour de France in 2013, the riders can also rely on the Dean FAST time trial bike .
The Topsport-Flanders women’s team rides a Ridley Liz, a bike that is specifically adapted to the physique of women. By sponsoring this team, we can support women’s cycling and get feedback from the female peloton.
We also want to contribute to the development of young cycling talent. That is why we sponsor some of the best U-23 cycling teams in Belgium: Lotto-Belisol U23 and Baguette Bicycle Center - MIBA Ports Cycling Team .
We also want to give young riders a chance to grow outside of Belgium. Therefore, we sponsor the Italian Team Colpack, and the Norwegian team Østerhus Ridley.
