19 Feb, 2020
We are delighted to share the news with you that fizik’s 2020 sponsored teams are confirmed! Along with our strong presence at the top of road cycling, we have a full set of mountain bike teams, competing in Cross-Country, Downhill and Enduro. MOUNTAIN BIKE TEAMS In Downhill, Commencal Muc-Off Racing, using Gravita Alpaca and Terra Alpaca saddles, are led by the French trio of Women’s Elite World Champion Myriam Nicole; 2018 Men’s Elite World Cup Overall winner Amaury Pierron; and Thibaut Daprela, runaway 2019 and 2018 DH World Cup Junior winner. Also in Downhill, Commencal 100% aim to continue building momentum with their young quartet, who will ride on Gravita Alpaca and Terra Alpaca saddles. In Cross-Country, Trek-Pirelli Racing will race in its traditional stronghold, Marathon, and Olympic distance, its new focus in 2020. Look out for 2019 Marathon World Champs silver medalist Samuele Porro and the exciting Vlad Dascalu, 2019 U23 XCO World and European Champion and U23 World Cup winner! The whole Trek-Pirelli Racing squad will compete on Antares and Vento Argo saddles and in Infinito X1 shoes. Orbea FOX Enduro Team have a new line-up for 2020 with French three-time EWS runner-up Damien Oton paired with Slovenian Vid Persak in the Pro Team. Multiple champion Gabi Torralba and 31-year-old Edgar Carballo make up the Spanish National Team. They’re all riding on Gravita Alpaca and Terra Alpaca saddles. ROAD TEAMS Our Road World Tour teams for 2020 are very similar to last year’s roster, with Team INEOS, Team Jumbo-Visma and AG2R La Mondiale all riding fizik saddles, while once again the Movistar Team and Movistar Women Team riders will use fizik shoes as well as saddles, in what promises to be a very entertaining year. Along with the usual highlights, some of our riders will feature in the Tokyo Olympics. TOP-CLASS TRIATHLETES We also have an exceptional roster of pro triathletes riding fizik this year, all using either Transiro Infinito R1 Knit or Transiro Powerstrap R4 shoes and Transiro Mistica saddles. The promising 22-year-old Norwegian champion Casper Stornes – winner of 2018 World Triathlon Series Bermuda – joins four experienced athletes in the fizik roster. South African Henri Schoeman – 2016 ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final winner and Olympic medalist – joins the seasoned Australian pair of Craig ‘Crowie’ Alexander, the former triple World Champion, and Cameron Wurf, the multi-talented athlete, former pro cyclist and Giro d’Italia rider. Looking to build on another successful season in 2019 after winning Bronze in the World Triathlon Series, British triathlete Georgia Taylor-Brown will be riding with the Transiro Mistica saddle and Transiro Powerstrap R4 shoes. FIZIK SHOES- RIDERS In addition to our roster of road teams, we have several top-class riders wearing fizik shoes. This season will see our new Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave shoes on the feet of champions like Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal) and Eros Capecchi, whilst Lawson Craddock and Nathan Haas will race with our stunning Infinito R1.
