Premier Tech announces the creation of its U23 development cycling team
For over 25 years now, the commitment of Premier Tech toward cycling has been well known. The decision of creating and leading a U23 team was natural. It is in line with its vision and desire to maintain a global position. This new team will fill the gap between young talents and the highest level of their sport, the World Tour.
The team will be led by Flavien Dassonville, a former rider with a solid background. Retired since 2018, he is now in his fourth season as sports director. He holds strong academic and sports recommendations, as well as seven years of experience on the UCI Europe Tour. For instance, he won the French Road Championships — U23 and the Paris-Tours race.
“With this initiative, Premier Tech reinforces its commitment toward cycling. It is important for us to be present in many areas of the sport, whether with local amateur teams or professional ones. The creation of the U23 team reaffirms our commitment toward the development of this sport,” explains Jean Bélanger, president and chief executive officer of Premier Tech.
