Garmin-Transitions (UCI Code: GRM) is a UCI ProTeam established in 2007 out of the TIAA-CREF and 5280 development squads and based in the United States. The directeur sportif and general manager is Jonathan Vaughters, a former rider.

The team of orange and blue argyle is sponsored by Garmin, a maker of global positioning devices (GPS), which announced its sponsorship in June 2008.[1] The sponsorship will last through 2010. Other sponsors include Transitions Optical, Inc., Chipotle Mexican Grill, and H3O. The team is managed by Slipstream Sports, LLC, a sports marketing and development company, and was known as Team Slipstream during 2007 and the first half of 2008. The team uses Felt bicycles and Shimano componentry.

The team has been invited to UCI World Calendar, UCI ProTour and UCI Continental Circuits races such as Tour of Flanders, Gent-Wevelgem and Paris-Roubaix and the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia.

The team had riders placed in the top five overall in both the 2008 and 2009 Tours de France, in Christian Vande Velde (5th) and Bradley Wiggins (4th) respectively.


Anti-doping program

When the team entered the Professional Continental ranks they began in the Agency for Cycling Ethics (ACE)[2] program to eliminate doping[3]. Participants are tested repeatedly to develop a bio-stable marker profile. Future tests check these markers have not moved - if they have the rider is ill or has taken performance enhancing drugs. If any change has been noted, the rider cannot race until the markers have returned to normal. Riders are interviewed and tested for illness or doping.

Team 5280 and TIAA-CREF

Vaughters founded the team for 2003 as a junior development squad. Its sponsor was 5280 magazine in Denver. The following year TIAA-CREF became sponsor and Vaughters fielded professional and amateur riders. 5280 and TIAA-CREF continue to sponsor Garmin's youth riders.
