Lotto Belisol: IJsboerke back in the peloton!
With 2014 in mind Lotto Belisol is immensely proud to be able to announce their partnership with IJsboerke. The re-entering of IJsboerke brings some nostalgia. From 1972 until 1980 the brand was already active in cycling, first as cosponsor of Goldor, then as main sponsor with different partners, among it Colnago. More than 30 years later IJsboerke and Lotto Belisol want to reinforce each other with a structural cooperation. The logo of IJsboerke will be visible on the chest of the new Lotto Belisol shirt. The partnership is part of the new dash that Glacio, since March the new owner of IJsboerke, wants to give to its brand.
Peter Janssen, CEO IJsboerke: “IJsboerke is strongly rooted in Belgium. Our ice cream is made with the best Belgian ingredients and the best skills. To give this Belgian roots an extra dimension we will support the Belgian talent platform Lotto Belisol. With the cycling sponsoring we bring IJsboerke even more prominently in the picture during the spring and summer months.”
Marc Sergeant, manager Lotto Belisol: “IJsboerke in the peloton is nostalgia. That, as a Belgian team, we can profile a pre-eminently Belgian brand, is a nice example of an ideal match. An ice cream is of course an ideal product to promote in a popular, accessible sport like cycling, which mainly takes place between March and September. We will gladly make the mouth water of the cycling fan and bicycle lover, first of all by good performances.”
