2007 Team rosters

Team TIBCO aims for the NRC circuit in 2007

Following its debut on the US national circuit in 2006, Team TIBCO has expanded its team to compete in a full calendar for 2007. Formerly known as PABW Powered by TIBCO, the team won stages at each of the national races it entered in 2006: Altoona, Nature Valley and Mt. Hood; and won the over all classification at the Bermuda Grand Prix. TIBCO Software is now the title sponsor for the team.

"We are extremely grateful to TIBCO for their support" said Linda Jackson, Director Sportif. "Their sponsorship is enabling these talented women to pursue their passion and become the best that they can be" she added.

Brooke Miller will head up the 2007 roster that includes returning riders Stacy Marple and Victoria Vallstrom and newcomers Katie Lambden, Liza Rachetto, Marisa Asplund and Yukie Nakamura. "The team is incredibly motivated by it's success last year and is looking forward to improving on that success in 2007" said Jackson, a former Olympian. "We plan to take the experience we gained from last year and add value with our new team members. Where last year I described our athletes as 'diamonds in the rough,' for 2007 they are more 'polished'," she added. The team will race in over 20 events in Silicon Valley, compete in a full national racing calendar (NRC) and will also compete in two international events: the Montreal World Cup and the Tour of Montreal.

Title sponsored by TIBCO, the Silicon Valley based team is also sponsored by several additional Silicon Valley corporations including Greenberg Traurig LLP, Goldman Sachs, Silicon Valley Bank, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Monitor Ventures,, Fenwick & West, Spectrum Orthopedics and Silicon Valley Cycling Foundation (SVCF). SVCF is a non-profit corporation established to foster the development of national and international amateur cycling.

The team will ride new LOOK 585 Elle road frames and 496 TT frames, equipped with SRAM components.
