The new year marks a new era for SRAM, with Trek-Segafredo joining our road teams roster in a multi-year partnership. The agreement includes the men’s as well as the women’s WorldTour teams. On the men’s side, Trek-Segafredo is a perennial top performer at the highest level of professional cycling, from the Spring Classics to the Grand Tours. The new women’s team will be an immediate force in the peloton, winning races and contributing to the growth and advancement of women’s cycling. 

For SRAM, this partnership is a decisive move to work with the most innovative teams in cycling. Team sponsorship is crucial in many ways. We glean feedback from top riders as part of our refinement and development process. We also look to inspire cyclists at all levels through inspired racing and showcasing our most advanced equipment on the best bikes. “SRAM has a pedigree of racing that fits naturally with Trek-Segafredo’s ‘best in class’ product motto. Their SRAM RED eTAP wireless group and hydraulic disc brakes are a step forward for our teams,” said Trek-Segafredo technical director, Matt Shriver.

SRAM also add a new Continental team, Vitus Pro Cycling of Great Britian. Our full lineup of sponsored UCI pro road teams for 2019:
