Team High Road's men's squad will be re-launched in early July as Team Columbia, but the women's squad has already undergone the name change. The team is being re-named after team owner Bob Stapleton announced earlier this month the signing of clothing company Columbia as new title sponsor.

The women's team is now listed under the new name, Team Columbia Women, in the UCI's official lists. The women's team remains registered in Germany, while the men's team has a United States of America license. The men's outfit is still listed under the High Road name by the UCI, with the re-launch expected to take place in Brest, France just days before the start of next month's Tour de France.
