CrowdRiders team selected by fans

CrowdRiders, a professional cycling team owned and managed by cycling fans, aims for its debut in the 2010 season. A similar scheme already exists in football, with the English MyFootballClub.

CrowdRiders' goal is to find 40.000 cycling fans that jointly want to run this team. Every member pays an annual membership fee of 55 euro, which will give them direct decision power within the team – from team name, shirt design and rider selection to race calendar composition and sports director choice.
