How we helped
Given their similar philosophies, Signature Sport brought Siemens and Cadel together. Much more than a simple sponsorship arrangement, the two formed a mutually beneficial partnership in which they promoted the importance of making sustainable choices to a broad audience.

Needless to say, the event received widespread media coverage.
In addition, Cadel helped a world-leading cardiopulmonary research project by riding inside an MRI scanner. He also participated in Ride Days and other events with Siemens staff and VIPs.
