TI-Raleigh was a Dutch professional road bicycle racing team between 1974 and 1983. The team was created and led by Peter Post.

The team was successful in classics and in stage races. Riders included Joop Zoetemelk, Jan Raas, Gerrie Knetemann, Hennie Kuiper, Dave Lloyd, Urs Freuler, Henk Lubberding, Rene Pijnen, Johan van der Velde and Dietrich Thurau. The team was known for discipline; team time trials were a speciality. The bicycles were built by Jan le Grand.

Sponsorship

The team was sponsored by British cycling manufacturer Raleigh and Raleigh's holding company Tube Investments (TI).

The end of the TI-Raleigh team

At the end of the 1983 season, the TI-Raleigh team split up because of tension between former world champion Jan Raas and team leader Peter Post,[1] with seven cyclists following Post to the new Panasonic team and six cyclists joining Raas on the Kwantum team.[2]
