Giant Bicycles has announced that it has signed a two-year agreement with Rabobank beginning in 2009.
The agreement covers not only the elite team, whose riders include Oscar Freire and Denis Menchov, but also the continental team with U23 and cyclo-cross riders which includes current cross world champion Lars Boom.
Giant will supply the teams with bikes and Shimano will continue on as the primary component sponsor.
"We're pleased Rabobank has chosen to ride Giant," said Giant chief executive officer Tony Lo in a company press release. "It's a natural fit—two organizations with a long-term commitment to competitive cycling. Combine Rabobank's talent with Giant's ability to create superior products, and great things are sure to happen."
