Skoda Design has revealed that it will be responsible for designing the trophies for the 2021 Tour de France.

The trophies, which are 60cm high and weigh 4.0kg, are made of clear green glass and reference the current design language of Skoda’s models with their signature crystalline shapes.

Peter Olah, Head of Interior Design Skoda Auto explains, "The trophies have become a real hallmark of the Tour de France. This year, we have taken shapes from nature: The motifs are reminiscent of blades of grass or flowers growing up the trophy. They give the trophy a distinctly natural character. Our design addresses issues that are of great importance to society and that we also devote a great deal of attention to in our design."

The Czech car manufacturer is providing around 250 vehicles to the organisation and race management of this year's Tour de France and is sponsoring the green jersey for the leader in the points classification.
