The team formed as Bike Channel–Canyon in 2017. On 1 January 2018 the team announced that Eisberg had stepped up their sponsorship in order to allow the team to function after Bike Channel went into administration.
The team have enjoyed two hugely successful seasons. Some of the highlights of their 2018 campaign include: Harry Tanfield winning stage one of the Tour de Yorkshire, which led to him being signed by World Tour team Team Katusha–Alpecin. The team won the overall title in the Tour Series the UK's premier circuit racing championship. Charlie Tanfield became a world champion in the UCI Track Cycling World Championships team pursuit and won a gold medal in the individual pursuit at the Commonwealth Games. He was also crowned British under-23 time trial champion on the road. Ryan Christensen, Max Stedman and Charlie Tanfield were selected to race at the under-23 UCI Road World Championships in Austria, the latter in the time trial. At the Tour of Britain, the team recorded three top-10 stage finishes, Max Stedman was 20th in the general classification and Alex Paton won the Eisberg sprints jersey.
2019 was another successful year for the team with multiple podiums in the UK and Europe. Some highlights included winning the Tour Series overall title for a second year running, a top 10 in the Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain, as well as the Eisberg sprints jersey at the Tour of Britain for the second time.
In December 2020, Elverson announced that the team had acquired sponsorship from British sunglasses maker SunGod and that the team name for the 2021 racing season would become Canyon dhb SunGod.
