Castelon jersey

A Castelon Jersey

Castelon was a cycling team, founded in 1957 and folding in 1963. Sponsored by liquor company Castelon, it was the first sponsor-backed team in Brunant. The team managed only four professional wins, but was always a contender for titles. With Jan Zomer, they won the Toulon-Cettatie in 1959 and Tour Brunant in 1960, and won the Cape Cross-Willemstad in 1958 and 1963. Another notable rider in the team was Gerard Sanger.

Castelon was a contemporary to Atlantic Cycle, Cavall-Cousins and the Tandpasta Anise teams.
