Team Virtu Cycling

Team Virtu Cycling is a UCI Continental team founded in 2012 and based in Denmark. It participates in UCI Continental Circuits races.[1][2] In July 2016 Bjarne Riis and former Saxo Bank CEO Lars Seier announced that they had taken the team over and renamed it Team Virtu Pro-Veloconcept, with the intention of it functioning as the development team for a planned UCI WorldTeam.[3] On 11 September 2017 the team changed its name into Team Virtu Cycling, after a new owner, Jan Bech Andersen, had bought one third of the shares.[4]
