KTM Bike Industries becomes the main sponsor of the German Cycling Federation.

KTM Fahrrad will be the new official main sponsor of the German Cycling Federation (BDR) and in future its logo will adorn the jerseys of the national teams in all disciplines.

KTM Fahrrad stands for quality and innovative thinking. The company, based in Mattighofen, Austria, produces bicycles in all categories, with and without motors. The latter from the classic racing machine to the robust touring bike. KTM is also a sponsor of the professional team "B&B Hotels - powered by KTM" and is once again represented at the Tour de France. KTM will support the BDR in particular in its youth and junior work.

"KTM Fahrrad offers comprehensive know-how in a wide range of cycling and the highest quality, combined with a long tradition and is at the same time innovative and progressive. This fits excellently with the objectives of the Federation of German Cyclists. That is why we are looking forward to a good and fruitful cooperation," said BDR President Rudolf Scharping.

"We are excited about how professionally and purposefully the BDR approaches and implements all of its projects. Full of pride, we look forward to many successful years of cooperation. Together with the BDR, we can underline our commitment to both professional and amateur sports. Our values overlap in many ways," emphasizes Johanna Urkauf, Managing Director of KTM Fahrrad GmbH.
