Cycling’s Tour de France has added leading French olive oil brand Puget as an official supplier.

The agreement will come into effect for the 2020 edition of the historic race, which passes through the south-east region of France where Puget was founded.

The brand has also further developed its presence in cycling in France by agreeing to sponsor the Paris-Nice race. It will sponsor the white jersey, awarded to the best rider across the multi-stage road cycling event.

The commercial rights to the Tour De France and the Paris-Nice are managed by the event organisers Amaury Sport Organisation.

The 2020 Tour de France will be the 107th edition of the race and will take place over 21 stages between June 27 and July 19. The Paris-Nice race takes place from March 8 to March 15.
