SL Benfica (cycling team)

Sport Lisboa e Benfica (cycling team) is the cycling team of the multisports club Sport Lisboa e Benfica, from Lisbon, Portugal. The current head of this department is the former Portuguese cyclist Orlando Rodrigues.

History

Cycling was the second sports department established within Sport Lisboa e Benfica, and along with football, is one of only two sports referenced in the club logo. The sport was in activity from 1906 to 1941, 1947 to 1978, and once again for two seasons in 1999 and 2000. Benfica won the Volta a Portugal in 1999, with Spanish cyclist David Plaza capturing the leader's yellow jersey. Historically, the club has had great national successes in cycling, and after some interruptions and delays, approved in 2006 the re-introduction of a cycling department to start in 2007. The team joined the UCI "Professional Continental Division".
