History[edit]

Team NetApp-Endura 2013

For the 2013 season, Team NetApp and British based Endura Racing merged to form NetApp-Endura. The team consists of eight riders from Endura, and 12 riders from Team NetApp, as well as NetApp bringing the Pro Continental licence.[2] The eight Endura riders joining are; Alexander Wetterhall, Erick Rowsell, Iker Camaño, Jonathan McEvoy, Paul Voß, Russell Downing, Scott Thwaites, Zak Dempster. Nine current NetApp riders will be retained too, these are; Jan Barta, Cesare Benedetti, Markus Eichler, Bartosz Huzarski, Blaz Jarc, Leopold Koenig, Daniel Schorn, Andreas Schillinger, Michael Schwarzmann.[3]

On the first rest day of the 2014 Tour de France, 15 July 2014, the team announced they had secured sponsorship with German cooking surface and extractor manufacturer BORA. The team for 2015 onwards will thus be known as Team BORA. The team will be the first German team with a German title sponsor in the professional peloton since 2010. Team manager Ralph Denk expressed hope that BORA's backing would help the team achieve their aim of joining the UCI World Tour by 2017.[4] After the end of the 2014 Tour de France, it was announced that starting in 2015 the team would ride bicycles from Canadian company, Argon 18, which would also be the team's second title sponsor.[5]
