HistoryEdit

ONE Pro Cycling was owned by retired professional cricketer Matt Prior[4] and businessman Simon Chappell.[5] The team officially launched on 17 February 2015,[6] although started racing the week prior, at the opening race of the UK domestic road race season[7] Prior stated that the team's aim was to join the UCI World Tour within five years.[8] In November 2015 it was confirmed that the team had been granted a UCI Professional Continental licence for the 2016 season.[9] They returned to UCI Continental level for the 2017 season, in part because bike sponsor Factor withdrew their support from the team in favour of supplying bicycles to AG2R La Mondiale.[3][10] In September 2018 the team announced that they would disband their men's squad at the end of the season in favour of entering the women's peloton the following year.[10] One month later in October 2018 the team announced that they had scrapped plans to launch a women's team for the 2019 season, citing lack of sufficient sponsorship.[11]
