Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team is pleased to announce the contract extension of Bigla for a further two years through 2018. Swiss company Bigla, manufacturer of high-end hospital care and office furniture, has been a long-time supporter of women’s cycling and is eager to continue as the sport gains momentum.
Team Manager, Thomas Campana explained the importance of the news saying Bigla founder, Fritz Boesch had a vision for women’s cycling from the beginning to grow the sport and particularly young talent within the sport.

The list of athletes they have supported over the years is incredible. If you go onto what the riders have achieved, it inspires us to get out of bed every day and build a really special project to honour Bigla and our other partners. We want to thank Fritz Boesch and Monika Loeffel-Boesch, Bigla is not just a partner, it stands for women’s cycling.”
Bigla’s owner, Monika Loeffel-Boesch said: “We’re proud to be a supporter of this project. Switzerland is an important market for us and it’s great to have the team based here but also racing across Europe. We love what the women have achieved over the last few years and it is in conjunction with what we as a company achieves. We have very high standards and believe in being world class so it’s great to partner with a high performance cycling team with the same values.”
