Team Vorarlberg (UCI Team Code: VBG) is a cycling team based in Austria. The team was previously known as Volksbank until the 2009 season, when the Austrian state Vorarlberg became a title sponsor. They were registered as a UCI Professional Continental team in 2010 until 12 June, when their license was suspended because of financial insecurity.[1] They were later re-registered as a UCI Continental team, and look to retain that status in 2011.[2]
