Giant becomes the main sponsor of the 2018 VolCAT15-02-2018
Two of the biggest brands from the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world are committed to Volcat: GIANT and LIV
Giant, the leading brand in bicycles and cycling accessories, will be the main sponsor of the 2018 VolCAT. As main sponsor, Giant is demonstrating its commitment to an event that will celebrate its 13th edition at the end of March. This event, which can claim to be the MTB tour of Catalonia and distributes UCI points, is attended by riders from all over Europe to compete on its fantastic trails.
With the start of the Volcat, Giant welcomes its new XC and XCM range. The iconic Anthem returns to its XC roots for its 29th version. A completely new, lightweight and aggressive bicycle with clean lines. Its new graphics and renewed Maestro system complete the package on this killer bike.
At the same time and building on the success of last year, the VolCAT Festival will return to combine competition and family entertainment. Activities for children and a fun space for everyone. The arrival of Giant as a sponsor of this race demonstrates the potential for the event. The oldest stage-based mountain biking event in Spain last year welcomed over 1,000 cyclists from 20 different countries, thereby highlighting the importance of this competition. “For such a globally recognised brand as Giant to commit to VolCAT in this way is evidence that the event has established itself in this highly competitive sector”, says Albert Balcells, Competition Director.
LIV will continue to support the women’s races. LIV is committed to cycling from the bottom up, but without forgetting the greatest athletes. With this support from LIV, we hope to continue increasing the number of women who take part in Volcat. Since its beginnings, Giant has been an innovative brand in the bicycle sector and is famous for having creators with inspiration, designers with dedication and “craftsmen” full of passion with free reign to create the bicycles of our future.
Under this new sponsorship, Giant and VolCAT will work together to organise this year’s event to the best of their ability. VolCAT 2018 takes place on 30 and 31 March and 1 April, in Igualada. VolCAT has already announced the creation of an Expo area for everyone attending the event to enjoy a genuine cyclist atmosphere.
