HistoryEdit

From Santa Maria da Feira, a municipality with a rich cycling tradition, C.D. Feirense established a development team in late 1983 named Feirense–Ruquita that entered the competition the following year.

It was the start of a decade competing in the sport, from 1987 onwards in the professional ranks, where its major achievement was an Volta a Portugal overall victory in 1990, with São Paio de Oleiros native Fernando Carvalho.

On 26 October 2017, to celebrate its centenary, Rodrigo Nunes, C.D. Feirense chairman, revealed the club return to the sport through a partnership with Fernando Vasco, Sport Ciclismo São João de Ver development team manager, and Fernando Pinto.

Fernando Pinto, former General Manager and financial backer of LA Alumínios / Metalusa Blackjack, was retained as General manager and retired cyclist Joaquim Andrade assumed the role of Sports Director.[2][3]
