The 2012 season for the RadioShack–Nissan cycling team began in January at the Tour Down Under. As a UCI ProTeam, they were automatically invited and obligated to send a squad to every event in the UCI World Tour.

For the 2012 season, the team was renamed from Leopard Trek to RadioShack–Nissan; in effect merging with the American Team RadioShack,[1] which ceased racing, and their former sponsors joined the Luxembourg-based squad. Johan Bruyneel along with twelve riders from the 2011 Team RadioShack squad moved to the team, joining eighteen riders from the Leopard Trek squad.[2][3]
