History of the Team

Created in 1935 under the name of Sporting Club de Martigues, the club became MARTIGUES SPORTS CYCLING in 1965. With its basic purpose to provide training to young athletes in Martigues, allowing them to thrive in all things cycling, SPORTS CYCLING MARTIGUES quickly established itself as a competitive level club.

Thanks to this training, the cyclists frequently flew the winning flag for the club and encouraged the team directors to be more and more ambitious. Over the years a great number of regional and national races have been won, propelling the team into National Division 2. 2010 was the best year yet in the club's history and the team were rewarded for all their hard work and dedication by becoming National Division 2 (DN2) champions of France.
