However, a spokesperson for Rapha stated that Rapha will continue to sponsor Rapha-Condor-JLT in 2014.
The company has sponsored the team since 2008, when it was known as Rapha-Condor-Recycling.co.uk. Rapha previously sponsored the Rapha-Condor team, which merged with Recycling.co.uk-MG-X Power in late 2007.
Rapha increased it presence on the internatonal racing circuit this season by becoming official clothing supplier to Team Sky.
