The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and Swiss watchmaker Tissot recently announced the extension of their partnership by 4 years (2017-2020). The latest agreement makes Tissot the first “World Cycling Partner” in the history of the UCI. Alongside this, Tissot remains the exclusive Official Timekeeper of the UCI for the totality of its events and disciplines.
François Thiébaud, President of Tissot commented: “We are reinforcing our commitment to the UCI by becoming not only the Official Timekeeper but also the first “UCI World Cycling Partner”. Our values of precision and innovation have allowed us to stay at the top of the game and to gain the trust of UCI. For us this title proves it. We hope it will give our partners and customers another reason to be proud of Tissot.”
The agreement ensures that the Tissot – UCI partnership will last for at least a quarter of a century.
