A PODIUM FINISH FOR MARC HIRSCHI WITH HIS RED BREITLING ENDURANCE PRO – AT THE 2020 UCI ROAD WORLD CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN IMOLA, ITALY
The new Breitling Endurance Pro was launched in late August. On Sunday, the ultralightweight sport watch once again appeared on the podium, this time at the 2020 UCI Road World Cycling Championships in Imola, Italy, on the wrist of bronze medalist Marc Hirschi of Switzerland. Exactly a week earlier, Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar’s yellow Endurance Pro matched his yellow jersey as he stood on the top step of the podium at the Tour de France. Grand Tour winner Vincenzo Nibali, who competed in the UCI Road World Cycling Championships, also wears a Breitling Endurance Pro.
On Sunday, September 27, Tadej Pogačar and Vincenzo Nibali competed in the 2020 UCI Road World Cycling Championships in Imola, Italy. Breitling is proud that the two Tour de France winners are wearers of the new Endurance Pro, Breitling’s new ultralightweight sport watch that has been finding favor among some of cy- cling’s greatest competitors.
But it was Marc Hirschi, the newest member of Breitling’s family of Endurance Pro wearers, who wore his vibrant red watch on the World Cycling Championships podi- um when he claimed his bronze medal. It has been an incredible year for the young Swiss cyclist, who won a stage at this year’s Tour de France as well as the Com- bativity Award, awarded to the legendary competition’s most aggressive rider.
The Breitling Endurance Pro
The Breitling Endurance Pro combines an ultralight- weight 44-millimeter Breitlight® case and a thermo- compensated SuperQuartzTM movement, which delivers 10 times more accuracy than a conventional quartz movement. Because of its light weight, it offers opti mal wearer comfort that, combined with its matchless precision and functionality, has, in a very short time, made it a favorite both of committed athletes and more casual sports enthusiasts.
Designed for men and women whose active lives blend a professional mindset with a sporty lifestyle, the Endurance Pro is equal to the challenges of a rigorous workout but fashionable enough for everyday wear. It comes in five colorful variations, distinguished by a colorful inner bezel in white, blue, yellow, orange, or red. The vibrant straps match the color of the inner bezel.
Breitling and Cycling
The Endurance Pro carries on Breitling’s long cycling legacy. The brand has partnered with major compe- titions, including the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, as well as with cycling legends Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali. Breitling has long offered watches with sport-friendly functions, and the Endurance Pro car- ries on that proud tradition.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern says, “We’re excited that some of the world’s greatest cyclists have embraced the Endurance Pro. We designed this watch with peo- ple like them in mind and we’ve been thrilled by the responses of riders like Tadej, Vincenzo, Marc, and, of course, Geraint Thomas. And they’re just the begin- ning!”
