Andalucía (UCI team code: ACG) is a cycling team based in Spain; the team is managed by Antonio Cabello, and assisted by Juan Martinez as a directeur sportif. The team currently does not hold a requisite licence to compete in professional cycle racing, after the team were rejected a Professional Continental licence – where the team had competed at since 2006 – in December 2012.[1]

The team looked to have a secure future, after the Andalusian government guaranteed sponsorship until 2010.[2]
