About Klubi Cycling Tartu

Klubi Cycling Tartu was founded 2017 by former pro riders Rene Mandri, Jaan Kirsipuu and local entrepreneur Hannes Kirs as an amateur team to give the U23 level riders (19-22 y.o.) an opportunity to continue to prove themselves as there were no pro teams and opportunities in our region.


During the 6 years of history  (former Cycling Tartu,, Ampler Development Team, Team Ampler-Tartu2024, Tartu 2024 Cycling Team and now Voltas - Tartu 2024 by CCN) we have had over 150 victories, we have produced 8 riders who have made a step to a higher level team and race as professional cyclists. In 2023 the team won 13 national titles in different cycling disciplines from Baltic countries and Siim Kiskonen was the 2nd rider of the team's history after Norman Vahtra to win the Polish UCI 2.2 tour Course Cycliste de Solidarnosc et des Champions.


We see this as a great result of team's determined work. 

Our goal is to develope Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian and Finnish U23 riders and win international races.

Today the team is run by former Tour de France stage winner Jaan Kirsipuu helped by the Latvian coach Toms Flaksis and Lithuanian Sports Director Gediminas Bogdanas. For 2024 Antti & Anatoli Sizko from Finland joined the team's management group to lead the Asia Tour racing calendar .
