Team News: JLT Condor Team No More

JLT Condor has been consistently ranked the number one Continental team in Britain, formed in 2007 by Condor Cycles with manager, John Herety, at the helm since 2009.

JLT initially partnered with the team in 2013, renaming the Continental-level team Rapha Condor JLT. After enjoying three seasons of cycling success, JLT moved to principal sponsor at the beginning of 2016. The team became JLT Condor as part of a three-year contract, which concludes at the end of this season.

The support from JLT has enabled the squad to take their racing to a global scale, as well as provide a platform for future talents of the sport to perform on a world stage. It has also helped the team grow the successful career of Ed Clancy OBE, supporting the triple gold medallist through two Olympic cycles.

Managing Director of Condor Cycles, Grant Young, explained that he was proud to be part of the team for so many years. “This past decade of supporting the team has made me extremely proud. I’ve seen Condor bicycles ridden to National Championship victories, to wins in Australia, Japan, France, Spain and South Korea, to name but a few. There have been highs, lows, and many medals. We have all enjoyed working alongside JLT, a business of enthusiastic people keen to learn more about the sport, many of whom are cyclists.

“Up to now, we have been unable to find a partner to fill the position of JLT, but we will continue to search for one. Condor will continue to support cycle sport in Britain, as we have done since my father started the brand in 1948.
