Everywhere there is a Cycling Pro race, the SRAM Pro Race Service car is around! Each year thousands of kilometres covered…
This year 8 Pro Teams sponsored by SRAM are racing the Tour de France: AG2R-La Mondiale, Garmin-Cervelo, Liquigas-Cannondale, Pro Team Astana, Saxo-Bank Sungard, Team Katusha, Team Radioshack and Vacansoleil-DCM. To make sure all their SRAM RED equipped bikes are working perfectly, SRAM Sponsoring Managers, Jason Phillips and Alex Wassmann have visited them before the start of the most important race of the year.

The Tour de France is not the only moment the teams – Riders, Mechanics, Staff,… – benefit from the SRAM technical support. All year long, during training camps, classic races, stage races, Grands Tours,… Jason and Alex provide SRAM products and services to the teams. The relationships they have set it up with teams are unique.

For Jason Phillips, ex-pro rider, the details are important for any race a rider has to compete. And above all when it is Tour de France. On his visit to Katusha team, he set up some of the Focus team bikes.
