    Quiksilver cycling team?!?!

    so this morning i was climbing Newport Coast Road for the third time and i passed this guy in what i think was a Quiksilver jersey. yes, Quiksilver, as in the boardsports company. the jersey was teal with a big Quiksilver logo on the back, looked like Quiksilver was the primary sponsor.

    this is the second time i have seen this jersey on the road- ironically, i passed 3 guys wearing this jersey on the same stretch of the same climb about 2-3 weeks ago- so i'm assuming that the team must be based somewhere in OC or in southern LAC.

    does Quiksilver have a cycling team, and if so, where are they based?

    It's French

    Little know fact: Quicksilver is a French company, based out of the south of France near Biarritz and of course the Pyrenees. I have never heard of their cycling team though.
    Were their shorts baggy?

    i knew someone would reply eventually!

    california- no, their shorts were not baggy. and yes, Quik is based in france- the surf culture in biarritz is every bit as strong as in huntington beach.

    edster- nope, that's not what i saw. the jerseys i saw were teal with a grey Quiksilver logo in the center of the back.

    thanks for the replies, perhaps we can work on this mystery together.

    Not to be a pain, but Quiksilver is headquartered in HB, off of Springfield, although they just bought Rossignol (French Ski company). I'm pretty sure they don't have a sponsored team, I'm guessing it's just some of their employees who like to ride

    odd

    you know what? you're right. it's not Quiksilver that's based in france, it's Oxbow. Oxbow is another boardsports company, must have confused them. thanks.

    pardon moi

    oops! I dont know why I thought they were French...? Stupid, but funny that i have told many people that. Something to do with what someone told me when I was in the South surfing. I guess it was the Euro HQ I saw. Which would make sense.
