JLT-Condor (UCI Team Code: JLT) is a British UCI Continental cycling team.[1][2] They were previously Rapha Condor recycling.co.uk following a merger between the recycling.co.uk Pro Cycling Team and the original RaphaCondor team at the end of 2007.

Profile[edit]

Rapha Condor was owned by Rapha, a cycling clothing company, and Condor Cycles, a London-based bicycle manufacturer and store. The team is mainly British, including 2009 British champion Kristian House and double Olympic champion Ed Clancy.

The team rides senior professional events in the United Kingdom and second-tier races such as the UCI Europe Tour (i.e. those other than the Grand Tours and UCI ProTour) as well as the UCI track programme.

The team announced that JLT Group has signed up as a co-sponsor for the 2013 season after the team and Sharp parted ways. The Jardine Lloyd Thompson group of Insurance Brokers is one of the largest of its type in the world[3]

Rapha announced the company would be stepping away from sponsoring the team after 2014 citing a focus on Team Sky rather than grassroots sport.[4] Subsequently it was announced that the team would be known as JLT-Condor presented by Mavic for the 2015 season.[5] The team is now run by Condor, and Rapha passed their ownership to Condor.
