Defending Australian Superbike Champions DesmoSport Ducati will be outfitted with UNIT Workwear at the track, workshop and travelling in 2020.
The Gold Coast-based team announced the partnership today as they enter the final few days of preparation before Phillip Island’s season opener.
Mike Jones will pilot the #1 machine after outlasting the competition in a hard-fought end to 2019.
The workwear range fits seamlessly with the team’s corporate red, black, and white colour scheme, a recognisable hallmark of the prestigious Ducati brand.
DesmoSport Ducati owner, Ben Henry: "I'm really excited to partner with the team at Unit this season. Our workshop is flat-out as we head into the first round next week, and as a team we have the spotlight on us after wining the championship, so we're working long days both at the track and at the shop to make sure we don't leave anything on the table when we line up on the grid. To have Unit Workwear step in and ensure our entire crew is equipped for the long hours in comfortable, professional gear, made for hard work is just incredible."
Toby Lynch UNIT Marketing Manager: "We're pleased to partner with DesmoSport Ducati for 2020 as the team aims for back-to-back championship success in the highly-competitive ASBK ranks. Ben Henry and Troy Bayliss run a professional and polished team that continues to set the benchmark. Our new range of UNIT Workwear fits in seamlessly with the look and feel of the team and will bring both functionality and comfort to the crew at race events, while they travel as well as back at the workshop. It's an exciting space for the brand to get involved in and ties in with the brand's DNA in two wheels while aligning to our newer involvement in powersports including V8 Supercars. We wish Mike Jones and the team all the best as the season kicks off next weekend."
DesmoSport Ducati owner, Troy Bayliss: "I'm pretty excited to update the wardrobe! We're lucky to have a great group of supporters behind us at DesmoSport Ducati, with a lot of them being home-grown, successful brands, developed right here in Australia and Unit is no different. I'm loving the workwear range we've been able to sample so far, and I have to admit I've been having a sneaky look at their range of downhill gear too, I might have to grab some of that too!"
