TI-Raleigh is a Dutch cycling team that was active in professional cycling from 1974 to 1983. The team was led by the former cyclist Peter Post. The main sponsor was bicycle manufacturer Raleigh. Under the strict regime of Peter Post, the team grew into an almost unbeatable cycling team. Sports director Post saw his team as a collective - it was not just about one leader, everyone could win. In addition to the Peter Post regime, it was also the good crop of Dutch riders that ensured the great successes. Well-known Dutch riders who cycled for this team included Jan Raas, Gerrie Knetemann, Johan van der Velde, Henk Lubberding, Bert Oosterbosch, Hennie Kuiper, Leo van Vliet, Cees Priem, René Pijnen, Ludo Peeters, Roy Schuiten, Gerben Karstens and Jacques Hanegraaf. And of course we cannot forget Joop Zoetemelk. Joop was the second Dutchman to win the Tour de France in 1980.

The German cyclist Dietrich Thurau (1975-1977) accounted for 52 of these victories, a very big achievement as he was only active for two years for Raleigh. The highest number of victories came in the name of Jan Raas (1975-1976, 1978-1983) with no fewer than 130 victories in the TI-Raleigh cycling jersey. Gerrie Knetemann (1976-1983) won 108 times for Raleigh. At the end of 1983, the Raleigh squad's triumphal march came to an end. Sponsor Raleigh called it quits.
