Top cyclists and the equipment they ride are an unparalleled attraction for cycling enthusiasts and fans. But unfortunately, not everyone hanging around cycling teams has good intentions. For example, Mathieu van der Poel as world champion, Jasper Philipsen and their teammates attract a lot of attention just like the celebrities from other teams.

With all that attention and the expensive equipment, it is best to secure everything well. Because besides the bikes, the trucks, the cars, and a lot of other cycling equipment are also in the spotlight. As an Official Security Partner of Alpecin-Deceuninck and Fenix-Deceuninck, ABUS makes sure that all the material is secured against theft at all times. As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of security technology and customized solutions in this field, ABUS secures the teams’ property both on the service course area and during races and training camps, as well as in the private environments of the cycling stars during their training rides.

At ABUS we are delighted to be able to support the Alpecin-Deceuninck and Fenix-Deceuninck teams as “Official Security Partner”. These top teams in particular have a huge need for security, coupled with sometimes very complex requirements. Securing a single road bike belonging to Mathieu van der Poel during a coffee stop during a training ride is one thing. Effectively securing an entire service course/race, including a fleet of vehicles used around the world, is a very special challenge and completes the security circle,” said Christian Rothe, member of the Executive Board of ABUS.

ABUS is an important partner for us both on and off the bike during training rides and races. If you consider that we often operate in multiple races and training camps at the same time, which also take place in completely different parts of the world with individual requirements for riders, teams and logistics, you can perhaps guess how complex what we do is,” said team management Philip and Christoph Roodhooft.

“In every step we take, security plays a crucial role. With ABUS, we are pleased that we can now work with a partner who can support us in each of these steps, with enormous expertise and history in the world of security. We have different needs, in our warehouse and while traveling, but with ABUS we have found a partner who can guide and support us for each individual case.”

Christian Rothe of Abus adds, “This is a great opportunity for ABUS to show that our two business units Mobile Security and Home Security fit together seamlessly and offer a good overall concept for mobile and stationary security. For 100 years, the ABUS name has stood for security in many areas, including the development and production of high-quality helmets for cyclists.”
