BigMat to sponsor FDJ in 2012 after leaving Garmin-Cervelo at the last moment
French cycling team, FDJ, will be sponsored by the French hardware chain, BigMat as mentioned by L’Equipe. Initially, Team Garmin-Cervelo was close to signing the deal with the sponsor but the company backed out at the last moment.
Marc Madiot, FDJ Team’s general manager, mentioned that he would certainly welcome BigMat to sponsor the team for the coming season.
Team FDJ has already applied for the 2012 World Tour license and it is believed that the French team will be successful in achieving the license for the coming season.
Marc also mentioned that he was interested to sign David Millar for the coming season but the cyclist was already signed.
