Euskaltel–Euskadi

Euskaltel–Euskadi is a Spanish UCI ProTeam road cycling team founded in 2008. It was initially an amateur team, but upgraded to Continental level in 2018.[2]

Having spent two years as a UCI Continental team, the team registered their interest to become a UCI ProTeam for the 2020 season, and were granted a ProTeam licence in December 2019.[3] In February 2020, it was announced that Spanish telecommunications company Euskaltel were to become the team's title sponsor for four years,[4] from that year's Tour of the Basque Country – later cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain.[5] The company had sponsored the previous Euskaltel–Euskadi team between 1998 and 2013, before the team disbanded.[6][7]
