TDT–Unibet Cycling Team is a Dutch UCI ProTeam status cycling team focusing on road bicycle racing.[1] Bas Tietema created the team in 2023. The team upgraded from UCI Continental to UCI ProTeam status in 2024.[2][3]

History

The main sponsor of the team is Unibet who sponsored a team back in 2006/2007 (Unibet.com) but because of a dispute with the UCI over gambling companies being sponsors they pulled out. Now with other teams having sponsors which are lotteries, Unibet decided to come back to professional cycling, [4] although from 2025 teams sponsored by gambling companies will not be able to race in Belgium.[5]

Hugo Haak joined as Team Manager in 2023 after coaching on the Track for the past few years.[6]

The team's calendar for 2023 consisted of mostly Belgian and Dutch races.[7] The team's biggest victory was stage 1 of the ZLM Tour by Yentl Vandevelde. Despite this success, Vandevelde was let go by the team for 2024.[8]

Equipment

The team uses Cannondale bicycles in a bright yellow-pink colour scheme.[9] The bike has Shimano Ultegra Di2 12 speed gearing with Scope wheels[10] and Pirelli tires.[11]
