The 2017 season of the Polartec Foundation Contador Team officially kicked off on Monday in Madrid. The Foundation supports two cycling teams, Junior and U23, in an effort to groom the next generation of elite competitors.
Polartec CEO Gary Smith explained why the collaboration between a company that creates fabrics and a cycling team makes perfect sense:
“Polartec and the Contador Foundation share the same values of performance, innovation and about the future of cycling. For us, this team is a showcase, but also a laboratory for testing and validating our latest textile innovations.”
