HTC-Highroad hit a milestone with victory at the 2011 Ladies Tour of Qatar, which marked the team’s 400th victory since 2008.

The team counts 241 victories since then by the men’s road team and 159 on the women’s side.

“We are all thrilled to hit the 400-victory milestone and to continue our success together. We remain an open team where success is possible for all. Seventy-five percent of our athletes have won races over the last three years,” said owner Bob Stapleton in a team release. “Each rider has a chance at victory by staying personally focused and racing as a team every day in every event. It’s the combination of exceptional people, partners and shared commitment that sets us apart.”

Racing for the team continues this week at the Tour of Qatar, where Mark Cavendish got off to a rough start, crashing heavily during the prologue and finishing dead last. Cavendish debuted at the Tour Down Under, but did not dispute the sprints.
