Fast Forward Wheels and Team Direct Energie have reached an agreement for the sponsoring of wheels in the coming two years.
FFWD has been part of the professional peloton since 2010 supporting different teams. Team Direct Energie is a perfect addition in the strategy and wish of FFWD Wheels to be present at the highest level. With riders as Rein Taaramae and Lilian Calmejane, last one won a stage in the 2017 Tour de France, FFWD aims to return to the Tour de France.
We are very happy to get the opportunity to work with Direct Energie the coming years! It's also nice to have a rider like Sylvain Chavanel back on our wheels after he rode to stage victory and some days in the yellow jersey in the Tour de France of 2010. says Rik van Putten, Commercial Manager FFWD Wheels.
Team Direct Energie will be riding FFWD rim brake wheels as well as disc brake wheels for some special races. All FFWD wheels are built by hand at their office in Zwolle, The Netherlands.
