Russia | Team website The Russian Tinkoff-Saxo team has a long history in professional cycling, which can be traced back to the Danish Home-Jack & Jones team founded in 1998.

Aside from its current incarnation, the squad is probably best remembered as CSC, under the ownership of former pro cyclist Bjarne Riis who shaped and managed the team until his departure two years after the squad was bought by Russian billionaire Oleg Tinkov for the 2015 season.

Alberto Contador and Peter Sagan are the squad’s current star riders.
