Retelit, a major Italian provider of digital and infrastructure services to the telecommunications market, joins the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team as its sponsor for the coming three seasons.
The first sports project of the Contador Foundation, which for ten years has been working on several levels to encourage the healthy practice of cycling among young people and to fund the fight against strokes, the EOLO-KOMETA team, led by Ivan Basso, in 2021 progresses from the Continental to the Professional category.
“I am very proud that another large Italian enterprise is joining the project. In Retelit we have found a renowned partner that shares with us the values of cycling; a leading company in its field driven by a great team spirit that works every day with an eye to the future, seeking the most innovative solutions. These are the same foundations on which our sports project is based,” stated Ivan Basso, the team’s Sports Director.
Retelit is a point of reference for enterprises, the public sector and operators seeking to tackle head-on the challenges of innovation, thanks to an integrated range which covers the entire value chain of ICT and digitalisation services: from infrastructure to data management, from the network to applications.
“We are thrilled to support such an excellent team as EOLO-KOMETA and to collaborate with the Contador Foundation, with whom we have common values and objectives – stated Federico Protto, CEO of Retelit – All our values are encapsulated in this project: excellence, passion, commitment, a respect for rules and an ability to meet challenges head on. Cycling is all this and much more: it connects roads, people, regions and emotions. We like to think that this is a bit like what we do through our infrastructures and platforms: unite people, companies and regions to support the digital transformation of our country. We are ready to experience seasons full of challenges and satisfaction”.
“Retelit’s support allows us to commit even more to the ProTeam category and builds on our view of cycling as a channel which paves the way for the creation of new synergies and collaborations. EOLO and Retelit have an excellent business relationship, which is now strengthened by the decision to support this initiative together. The entry of new sponsors to the project is always a source of satisfaction, but also drives us to live up to the trust that is placed in us”, explained Fran Contador, General Manager of the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team.
