Milton Keynes UK , 9 January: ŠKODA UK and XIX Entertainment have today announced a long-term strategic partnership with Sir Bradley Wiggins.

As part of the deal, ŠKODA UK will supply Wiggins with a Superb Estate SportLine 2.0 TSI 280PS DSG.
ŠKODA started life as a bicycle company in 1895. Since then the brand's passion for two wheels has never wavered. Cycling has remained important to ŠKODA since that day and the brand has honoured that heritage ever since. Today, ŠKODA supports the sport through multiple event sponsorships including the Tour de France, Tour of Britain, The Women's Tour, and as vehicle partner to RideLondon.
