The Jumbo-Visma team is the most successful cycling team in the Netherlands and is based in Amsterdam . The Dutch Rabobank was a sponsor for 16 years until 2012 .

The team was built up by Jan Raas . The team with well-known Dutch drivers ( Erik Dekker , Michael Boogerd ) was able to strengthen itself in the early 2000s, mainly with Spanish drivers, above all the three-time world champion Óscar Freire . The mountain specialist Michael Rasmussen was also part of the team between 2003 and 2007. The team had a ProTeam license from the start and took part in the UCI ProTour and the successor series UCI World Tour .

The main sponsor was the Dutch bank Rabobank for 16 years until the end of 2012 . Under this sponsorship the team management also maintained even as the farm team , the Rabobank Continental Team , the UCI MTB Team Rabobank Giant Offroad Team and in women's cycling , the Rabobank Women Cycling Team .

Due to the continuing cases of doping in cycling, the main sponsor Rabobank announced in October 2012 that it would withdraw as a sponsor from cycling at the end of 2012. The occasion was the proceedings initiated against the Spaniard Carlos Barredo , who drove for the Rabobank team, and the doping affair Lance Armstrong .

In January 2013, several former Rabobank drivers admitted to having doped while playing for the team : Thomas Dekker , who drove for the team from 2005 until he tested positive for EPO , said doping was "part of the job" . Danny Nelissen stated that for the Tour de France 1996 and 1997 he was administered EPO by the team doctor Geert Leinders. Also Marc Lotz admitted doping. During his time at Rabobank, he took stimulants , steroids and EPO from 2001 . However, it made no connection to the team. Michael Rasmussen , who was about to win the Tour de France for the team in 2007 , made an extensive confession. He said he had been doping practically non-stop from 1998 to 2010. The German driver Grischa Niermann , who drove for the team for 13 years, also admitted to having doped several times between 2000 and 2003.

Likewise, in March the Dane Rolf Sørensen , who was active for the team from 1996 to 2000 , confessed to doping with EPO and cortisone. Even Michael Boogerd admitted the use of unauthorized aids, he was even administered blood transfusions his brother Rini Boogerd day before his Tour stage win in La Plagne.

As of late June 2013, the team rode under the name Belkin-Pro Cycling Team. The new main sponsor was the US computer hardware manufacturer Belkin International , who announced on June 17, 2014 that it would end the sponsorship at the end of 2014. The title sponsorship was carried out by the Dutch lottery and the supermarket chain Jumbo . The Norwegian enterprise software company Visma has been the second main sponsor of the Jumbo-Visma team since 2019 .
