The roots of Team Sunweb stretch back to 2005, when the squad was known as Shimano–Memory Corp, before becoming Skil-Shimano, Giant-Shimano and then Giant-Alpecin. With holiday company Sunweb signing up for a three-year sponsorship deal, the team heads into 2017 with a new name, new kit and new aims.
Tom Dumoulin was the team’s biggest general classification hope for Grand Tours. The Frenchman won the Giro d’Italia in 2017 and was second in both the Giro and the Tour de France in 2018. He moved to Jumbo Visma for the 2020 season.
They still retain an excellent team roster for the 2020 season with talents Tiesj Benoot, Michael Matthews and a whole host of young riders.
The Women’s Team Sunweb is registered in the Netherlands, and was founded in 2011, taking the Subweb name in 2017 alongside the men’s squad.
One of the greatest names on the team is Coryn Rivera, the USA National Champion who won the Women’s Tour in the UK in 2018.
