About the team Palmyra Cycling Team was created in 2014. The main aim of creating this team was uniting of the Odessa best cyclists. Six months after the official registration a team captain Dmitry Shabashov won a Yellow Leader T-shirt in a two-day Odessa competition Grand Prix Chernomorets thanks to the joint efforts of the team members.With that victory, Palmyra’s stairway to success has begun.

In 2017 we focus on ultra-distance cycling though we don’t ditch single-day races. There are 20 major starts in total seven of which are international competitions and thirteen of which are Ukrainian competitions. Palmyra has yet to reach a peak of their career. We develop our team facing new challenges and reaching new goals. Our main achievement is that our team is strong and not falling apart. This is the beginning of our fourth year, and this is the year when we need to win more and collect more rank points and medals. We hope that the new season will be just as successful for us as for the Ukrainian cycling in total.
