Jaguar Cars, official supplier to Sky Pro Cycling (Team Sky), is delighted to congratulate Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky on winning the Tour de France. Team Sky has achieved an historic double by producing the first British winner of the Tour, whilst also riding for a British team.
Team Sky Team Principal, David Brailsford said “when we first put the team together in 2009, it was our stated aim to produce a British winner of the Tour De France. We dared to dream that within five years we could achieve that. We’re feeling pretty euphoric right now, and on behalf of all the team would like to thank Jaguar for being there right from the very start to support us.” Jaguar Global Brand Director, Adrian Hallmark said “it is wonderful to see Bradley and Team Sky winning this legendary and iconic race. What an achievement for a British team on a global stage! We extend our warmest congratulations to everyone at Team Sky and look forward to the next race.”
Supporting the team’s performance during every stage of the race were Team Sky’s race support vehicles, two pre-production editions of the all new Jaguar XF Sportbrake. Chosen by the team due to their versatile capability and high performance, the Jaguar XF Sportbrakes have been a very popular feature of the Tour convoy this year, the first time they have been seen on the road, prior to going on sale in October 2012.
