Women's cycling team Van Bemmelen AA Drink, directed by Michael Zijlaard and trainer Leontien Zijlaard-Van Moorsel, will be known in 2006 as AA Drink Cyclingteam. The Dutch producer of sports drinks has signed a deal lasting until the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 to become the team's main sponsor, whereas Ton van Bemmelen Sports remains with the squad as a co-sponsor.

Next season, AA Drink Cyclingteam will be joined by Dutch cyclist of the year Suzanne de Goede, who has also just inked a three-year contract with the outfit, as well as the daughter of Gerrie Knetemann, Roxanne, young talent Kirsten Wild and Belgian champion Corine Hierckens.
