{{{team name}}}

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

In professional road cycling, the name of a team is usually the name of the sponsor, and it can change every year. This template is used to refer to a team and make sure that the name will change correctly.

If two sponsors are used in the team name, the sponsor names are separated by a hyphen, see the discussion here. The ct template tries to use that style, although not all the team templates may be updated yet.

Usage[change | edit source]

Linked: {{ct|name|year}}, where name is the (UCI)-code of the cycling team, and year (optional) is year.

Not linked: {{ct|name|year|nolink=yes}}, where name is the (UCI)-code of the cycling team, and year (optional) is year.

Name[change | edit source]

The following codes are included: (a complete list is found in Category:Cycling team data)

This corresponds to the following teams, alphabetically ordered by most recent team name:

Year[change | edit source]

In cycling, team names change with sponsors, and so the same team can have a completely different name in different years. For this, the year can be specified. If no year is specified, the most recent teamname is used. If a team changes names half-way a year, the two names are distinguished by adding a letter. For example, the team currently known as Team Saxo Bank-SunGard:

Code Result Note
{{ct|SAX}} Team Saxo Bank-SunGard no year specified
{{ct|SAX|1998}} Team home-Jack & Jones the name the team had in the 1998 season.
{{ct|SAX|1999}} Team home-Jack & Jones the name the team had in the 1999 season.
{{ct|SAX|2000}} Team Memory Card-Jack & Jones
{{ct|SAX|2001}} CSC-Tiscali
{{ct|SAX|2002}} CSC-Tiscali
{{ct|SAX|2003}} Team CSC
{{ct|SAX|2004}} Team CSC
{{ct|SAX|2005}} Team CSC
{{ct|SAX|2006}} Team CSC
{{ct|SAX|2007}} Team CSC
{{ct|SAX|2008a}} Team CSC the name the team had in the first part of the 2008 season.
{{ct|SAX|2008b}} Team CSC Saxo Bank the name the team had in the last part of the 2008 season.
{{ct|SAX|2009}} Team Saxo Bank
{{ct|SAX|nolink=true}} Team Saxo Bank-SunGard the most recent name of the team, not linked.
{{ct|SAX|1998|nolink=true}} Team home-Jack & Jones the name of the team in 1998, not linked.

If an unknown year is added, the template will show a bad result, for example

If this happens, it can be that you made a mistake, or that the year is not in the template yet. If the year should be there but is not in the template, add it to the template or make a request that it should be added.
