The most successful Czech long-distance ski team in the prestigious world series VISMA SkiClassics - Team PIONEER Investments, changed its name after 3 years to the Bauer Ski Team.
"After a great 3 years of mutual collaboration with Pioneer Investments as Title partner, when we have achieved many top results including winning LaDiagonela, 3rd place at legendary Vasaloppet, ..., , we supported many talented athletes, as a team PIONEER Investments, we are entering the new season with the new name - Bauer Ski Team. Pioneer Investments had a major influence on the team's success and achievements, and therefore it is a great thank you for long-term cooperation. Although this year's long negotiations have not been crowned with success - by continuing the great collaboration, I fully understand and respect the decision of the management and I wish many strengths and successes to complete the successful merger with Amundi and to build on the excellent brand results of Pioneer Investments for the future“, said Lukas Bauer, Director of the Bauer Ski Team.
"We had to count also with this variant, so we are ready for it, and despite that there could be a minor changes in some areas, nothing changed in the team's high goals, team composition or plans to compete in the complete VISMA SkiClassics serie this season. We will introduce the exact plans at Team Press Conference, what will be held on 2nd November in Prague. For me, this current situation is a great challenge to prove again that the team is strong not only in the sports field and I belive that we will succeed in a new Titular Partner search. The team's name chase also involves changing the communication channels, which are logically derived from the team's name. The website changes to www.bauerskiteam.com, Facebook profile and Instagram to BauerSkiTeam resp. @bauerskiteam, "said Lukas Bauer.
