NUUN SIGMA SPORT
What year was team founded?
Our team was founded in 2013.
Where does your team call home?
How many members?
What is your team’s focus (eg Road races, crits, TT’s, stage races, drinking beer and eating pizza, missing race starts, having fun etc.)?
We are a National B focussed race team but we also have track, time trial and criterium specialists in our squad. It is safe to say that after Nuun, our main liquids are beer and coffee!
What is the strangest thing that has happened to, or within, your team?
In February, the whole team was left stranded and ill in Spain due to French air traffic strikes. Needless to say, we haven't travelled to France since
Does your team have a local claim to fame (eg most stylish kits, biggest riders, most likely to win a fight in the car park)?
We are definitely known for having some of the most most stylish kit in the peloton thanks to Castelli. Known colloquially as the "Nuun Boys", we are here to show off all the fantastic products on offer today.
Do you promote an annual race?
Although we dont promote any races we do provide a lot of support to race organisers in the form of Neutral Service support to races because we have a very experienced and willing support team and fantastic back-up from Mavic in the form of wheels and tyres.
Notable recent results?
In October (2016) a team of 9 riders travelled out to Mallorca for the 'Masters Week'. We ended up winning the Europa Masters Cup and the Vuelta Masters Mallorca taking 1st, 3rd, 1st team on GC and 2 stage wins.
Anything else you would like to add about your team?
We aspire to be a top, UK amateur cycling team with an impeccable reputation focused on promoting brands and supporting cycle racing culture rather than individual or team results.
