Our Brand Story
ŠKODA’s heritage with bicycles dates back to the start of the company in 1895 and ever since Cycling has remained an important area that we have supported over the years. In the UK, we are very excited about our association with the UK teams – Rapha Condor Sharp and Team Raleigh and are also a key sponsor of the Tour of Britain.
2012 was an incredible year for ŠKODA UK Motorsport, with Andreas Mikkelsen becoming the first driver in history to record back-to-back Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) titles. ŠKODA also dominated the IRC manufacturers’ championship, clinching its third consecutive title long before the season had finished; in fact, the ŠKODA UK team contributed half of the total ŠKODA manufacturers’ points.
