Cinelli–Down Under

Team–Down Under was a British professional cycling team that rode UCI Continental Circuits races. The leader for 2007 was Belgian Nico Mattan and the squad included 2006 British champion, Hamish Haynes. Eric Vanderaerden was a directeur sportif.[1]

In 2008 it wanted to become a professional continental team and signed Steffen Wesemann[2] and Bas Giling.[3] It also had an agreement with Marc Lotz but Pedaltech signed two British professionals instead.[4]

The UCI did not give the team the professional continental licence.[5] Potential sponsors pulled out, including Johan Museeuw, the bike maker.[6] and Then the team manager, who was its owner, faked having cancer and could not run the team.[7] It collapsed.[8][9]
