Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung

Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung (from 2010 Equipe Noris Cycling) was the name of a Nuremberg women's professional cycling team with UCI Women's Team status up to and including the 2009 season. The name was given by the main sponsor Nürnberger Versicherung. Due to its dominating position, also internationally, the team formed the skeleton of the German national team in women's road cycling.

The best-known rider was former road world champion Regina Schleicher, who ended her career in 2009. In addition, German runner-up Trixi Worrack and Edita Pučinskaitė (Lithuania) were among the team's figureheads.

The team's manager was Herbert Oppelt. The team's sporting management was taken over by ex-national coach Jochen Dornbusch (JoDo for short) from Jens Zemke. Dornbusch left the team at the end of June 2010.[1] He was succeeded by Dutchman Thijs Rondhuis.

In August 2009, a new main sponsor for the team was found in the yacht company "Skyter". In early December 2009, the company surprisingly announced its withdrawal.[2] In the 2010 season, the team therefore competed under the name Equipe Noris Cycling. The name was derived from the Latin name for Nuremberg, Noricum.[3] The team disbanded at the end of the 2010 season.[4][5]
