Cult Energy Pro Cycling (UCI team code: CUL) was a professional road bicycle racing team licensed in Denmark, that competed in the UCI Continental Circuits. It was established in 2000 under the name of "Cycling Horsens".

On September 9, 2014, the team announced they had signed Linus Gerdemann from MTN–Qhubeka on a 2-year contract.[1] On October 10, 2014, the team announced they had signed Gustav Larsson on a one-year contract [2]

In August 2015, the team seemed to secure its survival after gaining sponsorship from German company Stölting Group, which sponsored the Continental team Stölting in 2015. As a result, the teams planned to join forces, giving the necessary budget to ensure the team could stay in the Professional Continental tier for 2016.[3] However, December 2015 Cult announced they would exit the sport and no longer be able to fund the team - as a result, Stölting stepped into the fill the funding void.[4][5] As a result the Danish team disbanded.
