Tempo-Sport was founded in 1990. Almost from the beginning we also had a sports team. In the first years it was mountain bikers who rode for the team. On a national and international level, the team was a well-known name in the bike scene. With the expansion of the business and the new focus on triathlon, the story of the triathlon and road team began in 2005. You can find out more about the history of tempo sports here.
Constantly growing, Team Spirit remained the same
We started with four triathletes in 2005. In the meantime, there are always between 50 and 60 athletes from the fields of triathlon and cycling (road): pleasure athletes, ambitious age groupers up to professionals. Names like Karin Thürig or Emma Pooley were in the team as well as ordinary hobby athletes. This is exactly what our team is all about: this is not (only) about pure performance, but much more about carrying the enthusiasm for endurance sports to the outside world. Fair play, enjoyment and shared experiences are extremely important within the team. Of course, performance, ambition and competitive attitude are not neglected. Ultimately, however, it is the one thing that unites everyone: the fun of doing sports.
Design of team clothing on the time line
Just as the supporting sponsors and the team riders have changed over time, a lot has happened with the design of the team clothing. Our jerseys are a true reflection of the time period. But it’s not just the design that has changed a lot. The material also got better and better. While the first jerseys were still simple bike jerseys, which fluttered wonderfully in the wind, the team has been relying on the ever-evolving “state-of-the-art” clothing from Castelli for several years. Today, our team collection of triathlon and bike clothing and accessories includes more than 25 different world-class high-tech parts. Triathlon and cycling professionals also rely on this very material. By the way: We always have a small stock of team kits in Horgen and Erlinsbach, all of which you can buy as long as the stock lasts.
