I am very happy and excited to work with Festina. Cycling is an important part of my life and Festina has played a leading role at international level. This cooperation reflects and reinforces both parties’ passion for this wonderful sport. It also expresses a relationship that has always been characterized by a deep friendship.

Virenque left the professional elite in 2004, but his passion has led him to continue in the world of cycling as a television commentator. A passion that we in Festina have shared for 50 years; this year we celebrated our 21st anniversary as Official Timekeeper of the Tour de France.
