Riwal Cycling Team was a Danish UCI Continental cycling team based in Himmerland.[1] Riwal participated in races in many countries around Europe. The team's most popular achievements have been the Danmark Rundt, the Olympia's Tour in the Netherlands and the Okolo Slovenska. The team had 10 full-time riders. Most of the team riders were Danish but also includes Swedish, Dutch and Norwegian members. The team had one sports manager and several freelancers. It was founded in 2009 and merged in 2023 with team Leopard Pro Cycling from Luxemburg, to form Leopard Riwal.[2]

Team history

About 70 business partners support the Riwal Cycling Team by small and large sponsorships. The end of season 2013 Nikola Aistrup conquered the points in the first days of the Tour of Denmark and later he took second place in the final Post Cup department: The rider, who for years has been one of the backbones at Concordia Forsikring–Riwal has recently signed with the new team, which from 2014 ran under the Riwal name.

It was announced on 22 August 2020 that security company Securitas would step up as a co-name sponsor for the rest of the 2020 season.[3]

Due to funding issues, the team decided it would return to being a UCI Continental team in 2021 to ensure its survival, after a two-year stint as a UCI ProTeam.[4]
