Sources have confirmed to GCN that the Human Powered Health men’s team will close at the end of the season due to a lack of confirmed sponsorship for 2024

“The team will stop. That’s the extent of what we know, and it sounds like the usual struggle with finding sponsors,” a source very close to the situation told GCN.
Riders and staff were notified of the news during a Monday morning Zoom call. Although the team is set to close, the management is still attempting to salvage the situation, even if their chances appear incredibly challenging.
“There is a possibility, it sounds like, of some sort of rescue. I know that the management is working super hard, and they’ve historically done a super job. So it’s not all hope lost but they wanted to treat everyone with respect and give everyone enough time for those looking for rides and work next week.”
The American team races at UCI ProTeam level and has been a mainstay on the US domestic and European racing scenes for several years, dating back to the mid-2000s. Sepp Kuss, Danny Pate and Brandon McNulty have all raced for the team over the years, with the team racing under a variety of different headline sponsorship during that time. Human Powered Health became title sponsors in 2022.
GCN attempted to contact the management at the team but did not receive an initial response. The women's Human Powered Health team, meanwhile, will continue to operate as a Women's WorldTour outfit in 2024.
