Columbia Sportswear Company, a global leader in the active outdoor apparel and footwear industries, and California-based High Road Sports Inc, the owner of Team High Road, announced a new team sponsorship agreement that prominently places the Columbia brand at the starting line of the 2008 Tour de France on July 5.

Team High Road, one of professional cycling's most successful young teams with star riders such as George Hincapie, Kim Kirchen and Mark Cavendish, will compete as “Team Columbia” for the remainder of the 2008 season and will unveil its new uniforms in Brest, France on July 3, two days before the start of Europe's largest sporting event, the 95th Tour de France.

In Europe and around the world, the Tour de France international cycling event is considered comparable to the United States' Super Bowl in terms of popularity among fans and media exposure.

“Columbia Sportswear Company's sponsorship of Team Columbia provides an ideal opportunity to elevate the positioning of Columbia in multiple European markets by communicating our authentic, outdoor, active, American brand to our target demographic,” said Tim Boyle, president and chief executive officer of Columbia Sportswear Company.

“By sponsoring one of the top men's and women's cycling teams in the world, we leverage the international popularity and broad media reach of the cycling sport among enthusiast and recreational audiences, promote Columbia's outdoor brand leadership inEurope and the U.S., and support our seasonal product initiatives, such as Omni-Shade apparel and accessories for sun protection.”
