EF Education First Pro Cycling (United States) - Press Release: The EF Pro Cycling organization is thrilled to welcome the innovative Japanese construction and asphalt company NIPPO CORPORATION as its co-title partner. The team will race, ride, and explore as EF Education-NIPPO from Jan. 1, 2021.
The NIPPO CORPORATION has long been a sponsor and supporter of racing in Europe — the NIPPO–Vini Fantini–Faizanè team raced the Giro d’Italia on three occasions — but the move marks the company’s first partnership at professional road cycling’s highest level.
“It is the first time for NIPPO CORPORATION to participate in the WorldTour, and we are thrilled and excited. It’s a new adventure for us,” said Hiroshi Daimon, director of sport for NIPPO CORPORATION. “We are excited to contribute as much as possible to furthering the success of the EF Pro Cycling team across the world.”
