The UCI ProTour Eindhoven Team Time Trial was an annual road bicycle race held in Eindhoven, Netherlands. It was approximately 50 kilometres (31 mi). Each team had six riders. In 2006, team size expanded to eight.

Conceived as part of the UCI ProTour in 2005, it was open to the 20 ProTour teams and 5 wildcard teams selected by the organisers. It was held immediately after the Ster Elektro Toer, a four-day race on the UCI Europe Tour.

In early 2008 Eindhoven ended involvement in the event. The UCI said it would be replaced by another to be decided.[1]
