Gros changement pour l'équipe Sunweb, qui devient DSM en 2021, du nom d'une société néerlandaise créée en 1902 et spécialisée dans la nutrition.

After having a German license between 2015 and 2021 for reasons of partnerships, the DSM team of Romain Bardet will become Dutch again from the season 2022.

It is a small change that means a lot. Founded in 2005 under the name Shimano-Memory Corp, the team currently wearing the name DSM started in the professional platoon under a Dutch license. However, at the beginning of the 2015 season, the training led by Iwan Spekenbrink made the choice to become German while the local brand of Alcin Shampoo has invested heavily to give the team to the team alongside the manufacturer of Giant cycles and allow him to shine at the highest level. An association that has not gone further than the 2016 season, when the brand then joined the Russian Katusha team and that the tour operator Sunweb arrived with, for a time, an indefinite contract. But, after seven seasons under German license, the team now known as DSM will find its original nationality.
