Team Specialized–lululemon (UCI Code: SLU) is a professional cycling team based in United States that competes in elite road bicycle racing and track cycling events. The title sponsors are Specialized Bicycle Components and lululemon athletica, a Canadian sports clothing company.
Before 2012, the team was owned by Bob Stapleton's High Road Sports and was known in 2011 as HTC-Highroad Women. Following HTC's withdrawal of sponsorship and the failure to find a replacement sponsor, a new company, Velocio Sports, directed by High Road's former Marketing and Communications officer Kristy Scrymgeour, was set up to own the team, but most of the riders and other staff remained the same. High Road also operated an elite men's professional team known most recently as HTC-Highroad, which disbanded.
Prior to 2008, the team was named T-Mobile Women. Columbia Sportswear were a title sponsor from July 2008 until the end of 2010.

Famous quotes containing the word team:
“Romeo. I dreamt a dream tonight.
Mercutio. And so did I.
Romeo. Well, what was yours?
Mercutio. That dreamers often lie.
Romeo. In bed asleep, while they do dream things true.
Mercutio. O then I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate stone
On the forefinger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomi
Over mens noses as they lie asleep.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
