Team LottoNL-Jumbo (TLJ)

What was Rabobank, Blanco, and then Belkin, became LottoNL-Jumbo in 2015. Ever since sponsor Rabobank left the World Tour, it seems to have been difficult to find a sponsor in the Netherlands. The new sponsors are the Dutch national lottery company and the Jumbo supermarket chain.

The unusual thing about the current set-up is that LottoNL-Jumbo also has a professional speed skating team. Which makes sense, particularly because speed skating is a national sport in the Netherlands. There are synergies to be exploited, above all in the areas of performance analysis, nutrition, physiotherapy and back-office.

Team LottoNL-Jumbo rides in black, white and yellow. Well-known riders include Robert Gesink, who came ninth overall in the 2015 Tour de Suisse, classic specialist Sep Vanmarcke, Moreno Hofland and Wilco Kelderman.
