Premiering at the Tor des Géants® 2016

Coinciding with the opening of registration for the Tor des Géants® 2016, the organizing company VDA Trailers announces the arrival, in a starring role, of a new and important sponsor, the British company Montane. With a multi-year agreement, Montane has been awarded a prime spot as main sponsor in the great international Aosta Valley race. 

Since 1993, Montane, which is based in Ashington on the border with Scotland, has specialized in clothing and accessories for the great outdoors and particularly specializes in mountain clothing and equipment for very extreme conditions.

Clothing and materials tested at temperatures ranging from desert heat to freezing arctic temperatures of 40 degrees below zero, thanks to the significant technical contribution of extreme sports professionals operating from the Arctic to the great north faces of the Alps and Himalayas, including Andy Kirkpatrick and the recent collaboration of Tom Ballard, the child prodigy of extreme alpinism.

A targeted and exclusive production, with one goal: "further and faster" as the slogan of the company states, through light, durable, compressible and waterproof clothing. 

Finally, with its "Via trail series", Montane most recently received accolades from the world of running with the development of a 360° series of products aimed at mountain running and Ultra Trails. 

Montane now fully becomes part of the great Tor team, which adds another feather in the cap of the British company as sponsor of prominent races; extreme races such as Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra, Montane Spin Race, Montane Lakeland 100 and 50, and Montane Goldsteig Ultra Race.

Jonathan Petty, brand director of Montane, also spoke about this new, significant agreement: "We are pleased to announce our official partnership with one of the most important long-distance races in the world. The Tor des Géants® precisely embodies the Montane philosophy that drives our passion for strength and endurance sports in extreme environments."  

"Working to support this exceptionally demanding race," continued Jonathan Petty, "helps to enhance our growing reputation as suppliers of innovative products, clothing and light equipment. We look forward to seeing our athletes at the finish line of the Tor des Géants® ".
