Plantur–Pura is a women's professional road bicycle racing team based in Belgium, that was formed in 2020.[1]

History[edit]

In May 2020, Alpecin–Fenix announced the launch of a Women's road team, aimed at providing racing opportunities for their cyclocross stars all year round.[2]

The following March, following sponsorship from German haircare company Dr. Wolff and its Plantur caffeine shampoo brand, and Dutch architectural materials provider Pura NFC by Trespa, the team became known as Plantur–Pura.[1]
