Emmanuel Hubert: « With these Triskells, we will be the ambassadors of Brittany at the highest level »

The plain red colour will be used in 2023 on our men’s and women’s jerseys with Triskells which are a reminder of our Breton history.

Emmanuel Hubert, General Manager

“Our arrival in the UCI WorldTour peloton opens a new chapter with an international dimension. However, we wanted to reinforce our Breton roots. This is why, in order to mark the beginning of this history among the elite teams of world cycling, we decided to rework, with our partner Ekoi, the design of our men’s and women’s jersey 2023, with the addition of a strong symbol of Celtic culture: the Triskell. This symbol evokes the sky, the earth and the water. Natural elements that characterise our territory. Our colour code remains the same. Red and black have embodied our identity since 2020, as well as those of our loyal partners: Arkéa and Samsic, without forgetting a touch of celestial green recalling the arrival of Bianchi at our side. These three colours would identify us within the peloton with the added bonus of this Breton symbolism that we will be proud to export to our entire 2023 women’s and men’s calendar. The UCI WorldTour was our goal in three years, we have achieved it. What a pleasure it is now to be the ambassadors of Brittany at the highest level of professional cycling!

Cédric Malengreau, Managing Director of the Arkéa subsidiary

We are very proud of this new jersey that the men and women of Arkéa-Samsic and Arkéa Pro Cycling Team will wear for the year 2023. In addition to wearing our colours once again, as has been the case for several years now, this new jersey, with the Triskell, also asserts the Breton roots that we share with the two teams, and to which we are deeply attached. At a time when the Arkéa-Samsic team is joining the UCI WorldTour circuit, we are keen to encourage and support these top sportsmen and women whose values of daring and commitment to action in the service of collective success we share. The prospect of seeing Brittany thus raised to the forefront of the international scene is a great satisfaction, and the fruit of the immense work accomplished by Emmanuel Hubert and all his teams”.
