February 6, 2024
One Cycling is a proposed new ‘super league’, spearheaded by the sport’s top teams, with the goal of creating new revenue streams.
According to reports, Visma-Lease a Bike managing director Richard Plugge and Soudal Quick-Step owner Zdeněk Bakala are among the leading advocates for the new league.
A total of eight teams are said to be included in the project’s talks, but they have not been named publicly. Ineos Grenadiers, Lidl-Trek, Movistar and EF Education-EasyPost are reportedly involved.
ASO, the organiser of the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, and RCS, the organiser of the Giro d’Italia, are understood to not currently be on board. The team behind the Tour of Flanders, Flanders Classics, is involved. Cycling Weekly
