Team TIBCO was formed in 2006 as a regional team named PABW Powered by TIBCO, out of the Palo Alto Bicycles shop in Palo Alto, California. By 2009, it had become the top team in North America and was named VeloNews Women's Team of the Year. In 2010, the team expanded to Europe and in September 2011, Team TIBCO rider Megan Guarnier won the prestigious Giro della Toscana with the U.S. national team.
Since its founding, Team TIBCO has grown into three teams totaling nearly 50 women: the Team TIBCO pro squad, the Team TIBCO II amateur squad and the Team TIBCO Juniors.
Team TICBO was introduced to FRS by a board member and have been brand advocates ever since. The Team uses the full breath of FRS Healthy Energy offerings including ready to drink cans, concentrates, chews, and powders.
“Conditions vary so much from race to race, and from day to day,” said Team TIBCO Director Sports/Manager Lisa Hunt. “The riders have a lot of different requirements for their energy sources. FRS is a big part of how our riders prepare for and maintain energy for each race.”
Team TIBCO racer and Three-time World Track Champion and 2009 Canadian Time Trial Champion Tara Whitten, who knows a little bit about how to reach the top level of the sport, she also makes FRS a regular part of her regimen, both for racing and training.
