TAAP Cervelo is a UK based Elite road and track team, and one of the top development teams in the south of the UK. With experience racing at Premier calendar and UCI 1.2 level in the UK, and featuring riders with a wealth of international race experience, TAAP Cervelo is on a journey to become a UCI Pro Continental team.
“We started TAAP Cervelo in Reigate at the end of 2014, as Danny Shane Storck Racing, and Maison du Velo was the first sponsor to join us on our journey. We’ve grown steadily through the years and, seven years on, we’re delighted to be partnered with MdV again.”
