After a long relationship with component specialist FSA as the team's cockpit and crankset supplier, Team CSC have announced a deal with the recently re-launched 3T brand. This is 3T’s first major signing since the split from the Gruppo conglomerate late last year.

Richard McAinish (3T Technical Director), former head of composites at Ferrari's F1 division, said; “Throughout my career in F1 I've worked with the world's most demanding athletes. Michael Schumacher was not easy to satisfy and I think we did our best to enhance his performance. My 3T engineering team looks forward to repeating that success with Team CSC, who are one of the most demanding teams in cycling."

Team CSC boss Bjarne Riis was equally enthusiastic. “I went to Eurobike this year to look at all the component brands, and 3T stood out. The Ventus aerobar is fantastic, and we're very excited about their other products. We are ready to work with them to create great results and develop new products as well," explained Riis.
