AD Renting (All-Drie Renting), often simply called ADR, was a Belgian professional cycling team that existed from 1987 to 1989.[3][4][5]

Tour de France[edit]

Despite its short history and lack of funds,[6] the team was very successful in the Tour de France. Eddy Planckaert won the points classification in 1988[7] to go with the victory he achieved in the highly regarded monument the Tour of Flanders earlier that year.[8] In that same spring campaign, Dirk Demol won the Paris-Roubaix after a breakaway of 222 kilometers.[9]

The biggest success however was when Greg LeMond, a new signing, won the 1989 Tour de France with the team, taking three stage victories in the process.[10]
