Our first kit was made by Sportful, and we enjoyed a very fruitful partnership over our first two seasons. For the past two seasons, we have moved over to Nalini. Both of these brands are managed in Australia by dual Melbourne to Warnambool Winner and Australian Cycling legend Joel Pearson. For 2020, we are excited to be reconnecting with Sportful once more.
The official kit supplier of Peter Sagan’s Bora Hansgrohe, Sportful has always pushed the boundaries of technical apparel – and we’re excited to be able to take advantage of their expertise. The first samples of their 2020 garments showed that they haven’t been resting on their laurels, with the kit some of the finest we’ve ever experienced.
Not only are we excited to continue to work with Joel, but we are continuing our relationship with Simon Telfer of Created by South. The Melbourne based designer has taken charge of our past three years, providing us with consistently (in our opinions at least) with a kit design that puts the pro-teams to shame.
Team boss Lachie said of the renewed and ongoing partnerships
“We’ve been really fortunate that Sportful have thrown their weight behind us this year. The level of support they’ve given us is pretty incredible for a domestic team. Combining that with the ongoing relationship we have with Joel and Simon means that we are in a great position going into the 2020 seasons”
VDR will be riding in the very best of Sportful kit, the Bodyfit Pro line. If you want to check out the full Sportful line-up and are in Melbourne, be sure to check out LycraBros in Ormond. Stay tuned over the next fortnight as we drop the rest of our 2020 announcements, and our kit reveal!
