Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Mladá Boleslav, 10 July 2017 – The winner trophies for this year’s #tourdefrance have been created by ŠKODA #design. As in previous years, the brand’s experts have designed the glass cups, which the winners of the classic cycling event will be lifting into the Parisian sky on 23 July. The four sculptures are an expression of the finest Czech glass art. The #design of the ŠKODA VISION E served as a source of inspiration in their #design. In addition, this is the 14th time ŠKODA has been the official partner of the #tourdefrance. The brand also sponsors the Green Jersey for best sprinter.

3540 kilometres, 21 stages, three challenging mountaintop finishes: This year's #tourdefrance will once again live up to its reputation as the world’s toughest cycling race. The winners are all professionals who cross the Champs­Élysées finish line on 23 July after the three­week tour. This is followed by the traditional highlight at the end of the cycling classic: the winners of the four individual rankings receive the coveted glass cups during the official prize­giving ceremony. Next to the overall winner in the Yellow Jersey, the winner of the points ranking in Green, the most successful young pro in White as well as the winner of the Dotted mountain Jersey will be celebrating in front of millions of fans. After the finish, ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier will present the best sprinter with a trophy made of green glass to match the Green Jersey.
