Tejay van Garderen

“Velon is a great way for teams to help cycling fans get closer to the sport they love. It will lead to new technology and create even more exciting racing. Cycling has also needed a way for teams to work together, like they do in other mainstream sports. This is a tremendous first step.”

Tejay van Garderen — BMC Racing Team

About BMC Racing Team
Tom Boonen

“I am looking forward to seeing what this can provide for the sport, teams, and the riders… It is important to create greater stability for the teams to give the new generation of cyclists a secure environment in which to develop into the stars of the future. It is exciting to see so many teams now working together to do just that.”

About Etixx–Quick-Step
Rui Costa

“We, the riders, are the actors of the cycling world who have the closest contact with the fans and we perceive the need to give them an exciting show. I feel that Velon is working in the right direction to help us as riders and the fans to get more involved in this great spectacle of cycling.”

Rui Costa — Team Lampre-Merida

About Team Lampre-Merida
Andre Greipel

“Cycling has evolved a lot in past decades, technically for example. Nonetheless it’s important that the sport evolves structurally as well. Much has been told and written about the credibility of the sport, but offering the fan a permanently fascinating sport, raising the attractiveness to get companies interested and take into account the circumstances in which the riders – around whom it revolves – have to perform, are issues that will determine the future of cycling. That the teams are therefore united in Velon, is a good thing.”

Andre Greipel — Lotto Soudal

About Lotto Soudal
Simon Gerrans

“It's great news for cycling that teams are coming together like this. This is a major step that will help in shaping the future of the sport in a way that will benefit the teams, the riders and definitely also the fans. As a team we have always tried to set the bar high when it comes to creating excitement around the races and now we can do that in a group that will help us all to boost the sport even more. The on-bike footage was the perfect way to kick-start this project and we are all looking forward to seeing more initiatives like that.”

Andrew Talansky

John Degenkolb

“It’s really positive to see that not only teams are cooperating but also companies see the potential of cycling. By bringing our sport closer to the fans through exciting new technologies, we will be able to work further on the credibility and modernization of cycling.”

John Degenkolb — Team Giant-Alpecin

About Team Giant-Alpecin
Robert Gesink

“I feel this collaboration is a great step forward. During the several races last season we have given the fans great images from the on-bike cams and our live stream in the Vuelta. It’s unique to see a great number of World Tour teams working together for the future of the sport, teams, riders and audience. In the race they battle, but after the finish they work as a team for a better future of cycling. It helps building a better structure and financial stability.”

Robert Gesink — Team LottoNL-Jumbo

About Team LottoNL-Jumbo
Chris Froome

“As we can see from official figures the popularity of cycling continues to grow. More people are wanting to ride and as we saw from the incredible support in the UK this year at the Tour de France more are wanting to be involved in the sport. With the development of Velon, it will allow the teams to work together and help find new innovations to grow the sport, keep fans excited and attract new followers.”

Chris Froome — Team Sky

About Team Sky
Michael Rogers

“Velon is setting in motion interesting structure and unification of the world’s highest level cycling teams within professional road cycling. Together with the introduction of the latest technology, teams will have the platform to deliver thrilling experiences to fans from all corners of the globe.”

Michael Rogers — Tinkoff

About Tinkoff
Fabian Cancellara

“The teams have a story to tell and it is through a project like Velon that they can be sure that story is heard. The on-bike cameras were a first example of the soul and strength of the collaboration between the teams and the other stakeholders in cycling.”
