1966 was a big year for Ford. They finished 1-2-3 in Le Mans and the team they supported in '66 won the Tour de France! ...
Fast forward fifty years and Ford has already returned victorious in 2016. First winning the Le Mans GTE Pro class and Ford are also back in the Tour de France this year, with cycling’s premier racing team +Team Sky!
Will this second historic return to racing also be victorious?
The distinctive blue and black liveried Ford Mondeo wagon cars (pictured above) will be at the very heart of the action.
The riders are supported by the team in the Ford Mondeo during the race.
When not needed the Ford Mondeo support team follow at a discreet distance behind the peloton, but remain in constant radio contact with the riders.
Catching up when called upon to provide whatever a rider may need: clothing, water or nourishment.
Also supporting +Team Sky on the tour +Ford Europe has supplied a brand new Ford Mustang (pictured below), a Ford Edge, several Ford S-MAX sports activity vehicles, a couple of Ford Kuga SUVs and Ford Transit vans.
They will all be travelling with +Team Sky over the entire 21 stages and 3,519 kilometres of the Tour de France.
So grab your places at the side of the road early on and show your support for +Ford Europe and +Team Sky with cheers and waves as the Ford Mustang drives by ahead of all the riders! Team Sky Love Cycling
