Team history

Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank is the longest running women's professional cycling team in North America and traces its roots back to the Palo Alto Bicycles Women's (PABW) team. The team was created by Stanford MBA and Investment Banker, Linda Jackson. Jackson left Investment banking in the early 90s to pursue her dream of becoming an Olympian. After becoming Canada's National Champion in 1995, Jackson was selected to represent Canada in the time trial and road race at the 1996 Atlanta Games. She went on to win the Bronze medal at the 1996 World Championship Road Race in Lugano, Switzerland and accumulated numerous Canadian national championship titles in the road race and time trial. Cycling gave Jackson so much personally, that when she retired from the sport, she knew she wanted to help other women pursue their cycling aspirations.

Jackson became involved with PABW on a coaching basis in 2004, directed the team in 2005 and then added TIBCO as a sponsor in 2005 in order to help the team grow from a local racing team to a national-level team. Racing as PABW powered by TIBCO in 2006, the team finished the year ranked 36th overall in North America, up from 60th overall the year before. The following year, Jackson added Silicon Valley Bank as a sponsor. Jackson also created the Silicon Valley Cycling Foundation; a 501c3 formed to help develop promising female cyclists into top international competitors. The Team soon rose to the top of the North American peloton and then began an expansion into International racing.

In 2008, the Team won both the National Road Race and Criterium (Brooke Miller) and was ranked 4th overall in North America. In 2009, the Team became the top team in North America, won the National Road Race (Meredith Miller) and was named Team of the Year by VeloNews . In 2010, the team expanded to racing in Europe. In 2012, Team TIBCO won the National Road Race for the third time in five years with Megan Guarnier. In 2013 and 2014 the team repeated as the top team in North America. In 2015 Silicon Valley Bank became a co-title sponsor and the Team added significantly more international events to its race calendar.

In 2017, the Team added four more National Championships to its tally with both Íngrid Drexel (Mexico) and Nicolle Bruderer (Guatemala) scoring double wins in the road race and time trial. 2018 started off with yet another National Championship win; this time with new recruit Shannon Malseed winning the Australia National championship road race. In 2019, the team won the Australian national road race championship again, this time with new recruit Sarah Gigante. In 2020, Gigante won another national championship title, this time winning the Australian national time trial championships.
