Yesterday was the official start of Lotto Soudal, with the team presentation in Turnhout. The audience could admire the new shirt for the first time. Lotto and Soudal are at the beginning of a six-year collaboration. ‘Live Your Dream' remains the team slogan. At the presentation a new partner was introduced, Vasco Data Security. Their brand mydigipass.com will be placed on the back of the race shorts.
