ŠKODA has long been a patron of sports, especially when it comes to ice hockey, cycling and motorsport. We were born on two bikes and we love cycling ever since, supporting not only the major professional events such as Tour de France or La Vuelta but caring about leisure and semi-professional riders, too.
Not long after the company was born, in 1901 we fell for motorsport and 2019 marked our fifth champion title in World Rally Championship 2. Last but not least, we can claim that ice hockey truly is our game. We hold Guinness World Record for the „longest lasting main sponsorship of a world championship in the history of sports“.
The first vehicle to ever come out of the ŠKODA factory line was, in fact, a bicycle - and we've loved cycling ever since. Besides being a partner to Tour de France, Vuelta España and several professional cycling teams, we support anyone who fancies a ride once in a while.
Our passion for cycling is manifested through the We Love Cycling platform. Discover it in the online magazine which brings you original stories, awesome videos and reports from all around the world of cycling.
Long before cars, ŠKODA was all about bikes. Now we take care of cyclists and drivers alike. Together, we share the same roads and it is only by paying attention to traffic education that we can better cooperate and prevent dangerous situations.
We introduce our ŠKODA Cycling Collection 2019/2020, whose design is marked with signature ŠKODA Crystalline elements. The collection comprises 16 models, ranging from Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Children’s Bikes to City and E-Bikes. The two new E-Mountain Bikes, the EMTB FULL and sister model EMTB, expand the range of ŠKODA E-Bikes and make the ride even easier.
ŠKODA has been involved in motorsport since 1901 and has won titles all around the world in a range of vehicles. 2019 was the most successful motorsport season in its 118 years long history. Kalle Rovanperä and Jonne Halttunen won the drivers’ titles of the WRC 2 Pro category and ŠKODA Motorsport rounded up the season by also taking the WRC 2 Pro manufacturers’ title. ŠKODA customer crew Pierre-Louis Loubet/Vincent Landais won the WRC 2 championship for private teams. In the 2020 season, ŠKODA Motorsport will mainly focus on supporting the customer teams.
ŠKODA has been sponsoring the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship since 1992 and was awarded a GUINNESS World Record, for the „longest lasting main sponsorship of a world championship in the history of sports“. The IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship is the most important annual winter sport event. It reaches more than 1,2 billion TV viewers in more than 160 countries around the globe.
