Promoting and supporting cycling is one of the fundamental pillars of the sponsorship of ŠKODA. In addition to supporting the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a España and the UCI Road World Championships, our brand has supported the World Ports Classic since 2012 and we organize various events for every cycling fan.
ŠKODA delivers a tangible contribution to enabling great cycling events and proves, time and time again, the reliability of its cars. Although the spacious Octavia and Superb are used in most of the races, ŠKODA delivers a complete range of models, such as the new compact hatchback, the ŠKODA Rapid, but also a smart city car, the ŠKODA Citigo. All ŠKODA’s have something in common: they are smart, practical, spacious and offer an excellent price / quality ratio.
