New Orica-GreenEdge sponsor announcement expected soon

by CyclingTips

Gerry Ryan, owner of the Orica-GreenEdge cycling team, is expected to announce a new sponsor for his team this week, leading up to the Tour de France.


According to the Australian Financial Review, the deal has the potential to lead to a co-title sponsorship. This comes on the heels of the announcement that current co-sponsor Orica is stepping away after 2017.

In addition to the new sponsor, the report also mentioned the signing of an even bigger contract with a large multi-national firm, possibly involving his Marketplacer business — the owner of the fast-growing Bike Exchange website.

The Bike Exchange logo already has a place on the team’s jersey, along with his successful Jayco caravan business.
