"We are always looking for partners who, like Garmin, share our passion and commitment to the best innovations in technology, and Barracuda Networks is a perfect fit," said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Director Sportif of Team Garmin-Barracuda. "The partnership with Barracuda Networks is long-term and the company will also allow Slipstream Sports to continue to pursue other co-title sponsor opportunities."
The team will begin racing in their newly designed jersey at the upcoming Tour Down Under. New jersey? Pretty much like the old jersey. Except they added the new sponsor, which is nice, because you know, they're paying for that.
