JLT Condor - End of an Era

JLT Condor / Rapha Condor is not longer racing.

JLT Condor was one of Britain's longest standing UCI level cycling teams, founded in 2007 by Condor Cycles and Rapha. The team was consistently ranked number one in Britain until it closed at the end of 2018.

A day in the life of JLT Condor

Over a decade of support

"This past decade of supporting the team has made me extremely proud. I’ve seen Condor bicycles ridden to National Championship victories, to wins in Australia, Japan, France, Spain and South Korea, to name but a few. There have been highs, lows, and many medals."

Grant Young — Chairman, Condor Cycles

A National Champion is made

"John was adamant that we race properly and do it right, you can’t expect to race on the continent and do well if you aren’t organised. I enjoyed my time at JLT Condor, we achieved so much and broke boundaries.”

Kristian House, former team rider, 2009 British National Champion

Focus on young talent

Team Manager, John Herety, was focused on building British cycle sport and using the team to help nurture future talent. He set an international schedule of racing that travelled to five continents and produced many World Tour riders including Chris Lawless, Hugh Carthy, Tim Kennaugh, Matt Gibson, Tom Southam, and multiple Olympic champion, Ed Clancy.
