About

The An Post Chain Reaction Team is an Irish continental cycling team. The team has been based in Merchtem, Flanders, since its creation and has recently expanded to Girona, Spain. With the support of Sean Kelly, the team has been in existence for over a decade and during this time has earned a reputation in the sport as an ambitious squad fulfilling the dreams of young riders' intent on securing professional contracts.

General Manager, Kurt Bogaerts, together with sports directors, Niko Eeckhout and Neil Martin, create the most supportive environment possible for the riders. Sean Kelly not only lends his famous name to the team but is profoundly generous with his time and makes himself available to each rider for advice.

Sean and Kurt share the same passion for cycling. They both recognised the need for a continental squad which would provide a middle ground between amateur level racing and the professional teams. What started out as The Sean Kelly Academy developed into the continental squad as it exists today. The team participates predominantly on the UCI Europe Tour. The team's challenging and impressive race programme provides the perfect launch pad for ambitious riders to impress Pro-Continental and World Tour squads.

A decade long relationship with An Post has seen the team develop from strength to strength and has seen many familiar names pass through the ranks. Our alumni includes Daniel Lloyd, Matt Brammeier, Ryan Mullen, Sam Bennett and Owain Doull.

With the continued support of our dedicated sponsors and committed fans, the team will continue to prosper for seasons to come.
