Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team was a Dutch professional road race cycling team. They were a UCI ProTeam and competed in the UCI World Tour. The team was established in 2008, as the successor of P3 Transfer-Batavus,[1] while also taking over many of the riders and staff of Cycle Collstrop, the former team of manager Van der Schueren. Neither Vacansoleil or DCM renewed their sponsorship of the program after the 2013 season.

History[edit]

The team made their debut on the road in 2009. The team's title sponsor Vacansoleil is a European company which organizes luxury camping holidays. DCM is a manufacturer of premium quality soil fertility products. Following the loss of Vacansoleil as a sponsor, it was decided to close down the team. However Hilaire van der Schueren announced the creation of a new team at the UCI Professional Continental level with sponsorship from Wanty for the 2014 season.[2]
