TI-Raleigh is a Dutch cycling team that was active in professional cycling from 1974 to 1983. The team was led by former cyclist Peter Post. The main sponsor was bicycle manufacturer Raleigh. Under the strict regime of Peter Post, the team grew into an almost unbeatable cycling team. Team manager Post saw his team as a collective - it was not just about one leader, anyone could win. In addition to the regime of Peter Post, it was also the strong team of Dutch riders that ensured the great successes. Famous Dutch riders who rode for this team included Jan Raas, Gerrie Knetemann, Johan van der Velde, Henk Lubberding, Bert Oosterbosch, Hennie Kuiper, Leo van Vliet, Cees Priem, René Pijnen, Ludo Peeters, Roy Schuiten, Gerben Karstens and Jacques Hanegraaf. And of course we cannot forget Joop Zoetemelk. Joop was the second Dutchman to win the Tour de France in 1980.
