A.R. Monex Women's Pro Cycling Team is a professional women's cycling team registered in Italy, which first competed in elite road bicycle racing events such as the UCI Women's Road World Cup in 2015.[1][2]

Team history[edit]

On 28 November 2014, Marzhan Baitlevova, Yekaterina Yuraitis, Makhabbat Umutzhanova, Natalya Sokovnina and Aliya Kargaliyena signed with the team. On 30 November, Natalya Saitfutdinova and Faina Potapova signed with the team. On 2 December, the team signed Jessenia Meneses and Ingrid Drexel. On 6 December, the team signed Aizhan Zhaparova, Larisa Pankova and Kseniya Dobrynina. On 12 December Marika Campagnaro joined the team. On 18 December Milda Jankauskaite, Olena Demidova and Carolina Rodriguez joined the team.[3] On 24 December, Hanna Solovey signed for the team.[4]

In June 2015, Astana-Acca Due O fired Hanna Solovey citing “unprofessional behaviour”. This was disputed, with the Ukrainian Cycling Federation, claiming she was fired for refusing to take up Kazakhstani citizenship ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympics.[5]

For the 2021 season, the team merged with the A.R. Efideporte mountain bike team.
