August 04, 2011 – “After an exhaustive search to secure long term sponsorship we have concluded that it’s time to release our team members to pursue other options,” said team owner, Bob Stapleton. “Our team’s success has been based on our outstanding people. It’s in their best interest that we make this decision now.”
“Finally, we would like to thank our partners who worked very closely with us over the years to help set Highroad as the benchmark for elite cycling teams,” added Stapleton. “We are very proud of the performance and value we gave our sponsors and our fans.”
The team will race through the end of the 2011 season and likely reach its 500th race win since its inception in 2008. To date, the team has won 484 races including 54 grand tour stages and has a large collection of classic and stage race victories to its name.
