This summer will take place the « Etape du Tour » on July 8 in Annecy. In this article G4 decided to come back with you on the creation of the common project between G4 and Mini Paris and will take the opportunity to introduce you his G4/Mini team that will participate at the « Etape du Tour ».
As you know G4 is always creating for you more and more elegant and performant cycling ranges, so what’s better for G4 to make a partnership with Mini Paris a car brand recognized for its models of cars very chic and colorful in perfect agreement with the values that our brand wishes to highlight. The association between these two high-end brands was aimed at the creation of a Pop-Up Store in Paris, the opportunity for Geoffroy Lequatre designer of the brand to promote his new Mini/Paris collection, especially designed for the “Etape du Tour”, without forgetting all G4 ranges collections.
Concerned about his customers, G4 wanted to set up a Game in collaboration with Mini Paris to give the opportunity to one of its faithful customers to win a place on the G4 / Mini team. The team will be represented by Geoffroy Lequatre founder and designer of G4 brand, his ambassador Matthieu Converset, Jean-françois Duguey, Ludovic Vanhove, and our lucky winner of the Game, as you saw in our facebook page David Bouillaux. For the occasion, our 5 riders will proudly wear the colors of our G4/Mini Paris collection.
