Repsol is a proud sponsor of the Hammer Stavanger and Tour of Norway cycling events that took place in May this year. Both events were successfully completed, and we already look forward to 2020.
The Hammer Stavanger, part of the Hammer Series, was a newcomer on Norway’s cycling calendar in 2018. After the first edition of Hammer Stavanger 2018, Repsol signed a contract for another 5 years with Hammer Stavanger to secure a more long-term cooperation. Hammer Stavanger 2019 was three days of action-packed racing in Stavanger.
Repsol has also been a main sponsor for Tour des Fjords since 2016. After the merger of Tour des Fjords and Tour of Norway in 2018 the 2019 edition of Tour of Norway had 6 race days in the southern part of Norway- starting in Rogaland and finishing in the eastern parts of Norway.
“Sponsoring this type of activity offers us the opportunity to promote the presence of our company in the southwest of Norway, where we have our headquarters in Stavanger”, says Grethe Foldnes, Manager External Affairs.
“Repsol works with several organizations in Norway to work toward building better communities” and she adds that “we are proud to support these positive sporting events, which attracts top cyclists as well as local community members who take part in the “Cycle Sportive” race, the family & kids race and other family-friendly events”.
