Cycling is one of the sports to which Tissot is most committed, having been a sponsor of cycling events for over a quarter of a century, including for the Tour de France in 1978, the Tour de Suisse and La Vuelta d’Espagna in Spain, amongst others. Proud of its Swiss origins, Tissot further enhances its commitment by its association to the International Cycling Union (UCI) in 1995. This sponsorship is a means for Tissot to attract a wide audience of people who can associate themselves with this pastime based on endurance, precision and performance. Further to this partnership, Tissot becomes Official Timekeeper and Sponsor of the World Championships of road, track, mountain bike, BMX and the World Cup Classics track series as well as the Mountain Bike World Cup.
