“Supporting the women’s cycling sport and female athletes to further develop their professional careers perfectly fits with the Deceuninck core values of diversity and gender equality. Supporting both young talent and enforce female cycling are two values which we both hold in very high esteem“, says the Deceuninck CEO Francis Van Eeckhout.
By his side, the Alpecin Fenix representative Philip Roodhooft: “We have known an explosive growth over the past few years but we’re far from being at the end of this journey. Getting Deceuninck on board, alongside our current partners, will give us the means to confirm our current level and, at the same time, further develop and materialize our future ambitions. As a belgian multinational they understand our continuous pursuit of perfection and ambition. So, I’m sure that this sponsor match we will excel together“.
