Team UK Youth (UCI team code: UKY) was a British UCI Continental cycling team, competing from 2011 to 2013.[1][2][3]



Founded in 2011 Team UK Youth were sponsored by UK Youth, a UK-based youth work charity. The team rode senior professional events in the United Kingdom and Europe, other than the Grand Tours and UCI ProTour races. For the 2012 season they expanded the team, joining the UCI Continental Circuits, and competing in the Tour of Britain.[4]

The team was owned by former Formula One and Indycar champion Nigel Mansell.[5]

At the end of the 2013 season, the team announced that unless a new headline sponsor could be found, they would not compete in 2014.[6]
