Abus, Official partner
Whoever takes on the challenges and rigours of the Paris-Roubaix cycling classic better be prepared. The cobbled sections of Trouée d’Arenberg and Carrefour de l’Arbre demand everything riders can give and more. But it’s not just the riders who face the toughest of tests: the equipment used at the “Queen of the classics” must withstand massive levels of impact, nasty crashes, and other gruelling conditions. ABUS helmets are the best choice for this extreme terrain, offering a perfect fit, outstanding ventilation and maximum safety – everything that’s needed in the peloton. The pro cycling team BORA - ARGON 18 places their full faith in the good, secure feeling provided by ABUS.
When August Bremicker and his sons founded ABUS in 1924 with trust in God, they had a great deal of technical skill – and a clear vision: they wanted to create products that protect people’s life and their property. A farsighted corporate guideline – a commitment to quality made in Germany – right from the start. The prelude to a continuous success story. The ABUS brand became a synonym for security.
With its Mobile Security division, ABUS offers first-class quality for both daily outings and the grand tour: high-tech safety and security products for cyclists featuring superior engineering and outstanding design. As a pioneer in bike locks, ABUS offers a wide range of robust and reliable solutions for every need.

Škoda, official car
For almost 13 years, ŠKODA has been the partner of the Tour de France and pays tribute to cycling enthusiasts.
Ideal for family weekends and cycling trips, ŠKODA presents the new Fabia. With its sought-after design, it is more intelligent and practical than ever. The new model can accommodate five occupants and their luggage, while remaining sufficiently compact to be extremely quick and agile.
The ŠKODA Fabia provides lots of space: a longer and wider passenger area than on earlier models, with more headroom for the driver and passengers. The 330 litre boot is the biggest in its category.
The new Fabia is also the first ŠKODA to feature MirrorLink™ technology, which allows smartphone apps to be displayed on the infotainment system.
Another really useful feature is the SmartGate which allows certain data from the vehicle such as fuel consumption, average speed or travel costs to be sent to dedicated smartphone apps with a view to recording and using this information on the go.
Lastly, the new ŠKODA Fabia also features “Simply Clever” solutions, particularly the parking ticket holder inside the left of the windscreen as standard, and the optional two securing hooks in the boot.
