Sojasun was a French cycling team registered at UCI Professional Continental level. They were founded in 2009 as Besson Chaussures-Sojasun.[1] The team rode BH bicycles.[2] Their sponsor Sojasun is a company which manufactures soya-based foods.[3]

In 2012, the team received a wildcard invitation to the Tour de France, along with three other French-registered teams.[4]

The professional cycling team Sojasun will not be present in the professional peloton in 2014, after the team was unable to find a new title sponsor.[5]
