ABUS becomes the Official Security Partner of Alpecin-Deceuninck and Fenix-Deceuninck

If you ride fast, you attract attention. Anyone who cycles so fast that they become World Champion or sprints so fast that they win the Green Jersey attracts ALL the attention. And they also look at the bikes, the trucks, the cars, the service course, etc.. As the Official Security Partner of the Alpecin-Deceuninck and Fenix-Deceuninck World and Development Teams, ABUS ensures that both the bikes and the jerseys of Mathieu van der Poel, Jasper Philipsen, Puck Pieterse and all team members are safe 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 at the service course and during races and training camps, as well as in the private surroundings of today's and tomorrow's cycling stars on their training rides. In addition to equipping them with the latest security equipment, this also includes training of all team members on and off the bike.

"We at ABUS are delighted to be able to support Alpecin-Deceuninck and Fenix-Deceuninck teams and their devotees as an "Official Security Partner". Such high-class teams in particular have a massive need for security, coupled with sometimes very complex requirements. Securing a single road bike belonging to Mathieu van der Poel during a coffee stop on a training ride is one thing. Effectively securing an entire service course, including a fleet of vehicles used all over the world, is a very special challenge and completes the security circle," says Christian Rothe, member of the ABUS Executive Board.

"This is a great opportunity for ABUS to show that our two business areas of Mobile Security and Home Security are seamlessly interlinked and offer a well-rounded overall concept for mobile and stationary security. The name ABUS has stood for security in many areas for 100 years now, including the development and manufacturing of high-quality protective gear for cyclists”, Rothe continues.

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

"Within every step we take, security plats a vital role. With ABUS, we are delighted now to be able to work with a partner, who can support us along each of these steps, with a huge expertise and history in the world of the security. We have different needs, in our warehouse and while traveling, but with ABUS, we found a partner who can guide and support us for each individual case".
