Team SmartStop

Team SmartStop was an American UCI Continental cycling team that was formed in 2008 when the team Time was disbanded. SmartStop was originally named Mountain Khakis. Team SmartStop is directed by former professional cyclist Mike Creed, who in his own right had a very successful international cycling career. After coming on board with Team SmartStop and changing the program to a stage racing team, Creed led the team to many victories in 2014 including the USA Pro Road Race National Championships and the UCI America's Tour. It disbanded after the 2015 season.
