Leopard Cycling Team

The Leopard Development Team supports promising young cyclists. It consists of a majority of riders under 23 years of age, who are supported by some experienced athletes. Leopard DT is located in Luxembourg. In order to foster the development of its Luxembourgish cyclists, the team maintains a close cooperation with the Luxembourgish Cycling Association.

The Leopard cycling project emphasises values such as fairplay, team spirit and tolerance. Its goal is to develop the riders on and off the bike. Leopard DT is directed by team director Markus Zingen and sport director Tom Flammang, who are eager to pass on their experience and knowledge about professional cycling to the young athletes.
