TAMPA, FL (BRAIN) Feb 2, 10:51 MT —American Classic, starting its 30th year in business this year, is sponsoring and supplying its first major pro road team, the France-based Cofidis quad.

In the team's first race with American Classic wheels, Samuel Dumolin won the GP Marseillaise France on Sunday using the company's Carbon 38 tubular wheels.

“We are going to the next level with this partnership with Cofidis. Samuel’s win is the perfect way to start our 30th year anniversary season. The riders have fast wheels for all race conditions, cobblestones, time trials and sprinting. Joining Cofidis riders and technical is the ideal platform for testing current and new technology,” said Bill Shook, American Classic's founder and design engineer.

Cofidis will race the AC carbon tubular 38, 58, 85, carbon tt disk wheels and train on 420 Aero 3 wheelsets.
