As they continue their path to the Rio Olympics, the Superior Brentjens MTB Racing Team will have CST Tires as their title sponsor in 2016.
The pairing is a natural one, given the long relationship between CST and the Netherlands-based team. CST has been the Official Tire of Superior Brentjens MTB since the team’s founding in 2009, and CST Holland Directors Jack and Bob Duis have been enthusiastic supporters as team members have won multiple national and world titles.
Bart Brentjens, 1996 Olympic XCO champion and the team’s manager, praised CST products and the team’s partnership with the company: “A tire is a special and very important part for a bike, and the choice of tires can definitely influence results for our riders. The right choice of tires can make the difference between winning and losing. We are very happy to welcome CST Tires as our main and name sponsor in the Rio Olympic year 2016. Together, we are going to further improve quality and increase publicity for CST’s mountain bike tires. An Olympic year is always different compared to the other three years in the cycle. We hope our team will surprise the rest of the world in this coming Olympic year, like they did this year with great results. We’re happy that CST Tires will support us to reach our goals!”
Jack Duis was equally enthusiastic in praising Brentjens and his team. “Bart Brentjens is a mountain bike legend and has been building a great mountain bike team since 2009. We have been supplying tires to Bart’s team and have built up a very good relationship with Bart. His knowhow is invaluable to CST because we develop tires for winners, and Bart is a winner. CST will use his feedback and the feedback of the team’s riders to develop the best tires on the market. We are thrilled to be the new main sponsor of the team.”
CST is proud to sponsor the CST Superior Brentjens MTB Racing Team, and looks forward to cheering them on to victory in 2016.
