Hungary returns to the world of professional cycling!
Posted by Peti · Oct 26, 2022

After a five year hiatus the country once again has a team to compete in the major cycling competitions.

Hungarian cyclists such as Attila Valter, Erik Fetter, Barnabás Peák, Márton Dina or Péter Kusztor have
been a staple of international contests for a number of years now, however the country missed at least
one team to keep the pros together since 2018 – reports Telex.
However that changed now as recently the Epronex-Hungary team was introduced with the aim of
participating in international contests organized by Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the world
governing body of cycling.
The sport became quite popular in the country in recent years as Hungary organized its own contest
Tour de Hongrie as well as moonlighting as the starting stage of this year’s Giro d’Italia.
The Epronex-Hungary team though is not new as it has been in operation since 2016, however so far it
lacked the continental designation that would’ve allowed the team to compete in the major cycling
competitions throughout Europe and the world.
The team has already gathered 197 UCI points this year and now the team is slated to collect further
qualification points that could.
