The four-year agreement adds another 100 hours of coverage to Flobikes' cycling-themed airtime. Flobikes has already covered several major races in 2020. Their subscribers could watch for example the Tour de France, Strade Bianchi, Milan-San Remo, Criterium du Daphuine, moreover, Giro d'Italia, Tour of Flanders, the UCI World Championships and Vuelta a Espana were included - and we are proud to share that Hungary's biggest cycling race, Tour de Hongrie was also available to follow.


Despite coronavirus pandemic and its global effects, Flobikes has had an astonishingly successful cycling season in 2020, its average event view increased by 352% compared to 2019, and its number of subscribers was increasing by 122%.


"I am very pleased with this partnership, the North American market is a very important area for cycling, with number of excellent professionals, but also with enthusiastic riders, in all areas" - said UCI President, David Lappartient. "Flobikes is getting stronger and seems to be doing everything to promote the sport."



Team Novo Nordisk from the USA - with the Hungarian champion, Peter Kusztor - was so successful in 2020 at Tour de Hongrie 


Flobikes' broadcast calendar already includes the 2021 Tour de Hongrie, which obviously will have great interest in the USA, as the country's two star teams, the world-famous WorldTeam, Trek-Segafredo, and the brilliant ProTeam with more than eight million followers worldwide, the squad which celebrates the centenary of the fight against diabetes next year, Team Novo Nordisk will both attend the Hungarian Tour in May 2021. We hope to see Hungary's champion, Peter Kusztor competing in the jersey of Novo Nordisk again.
