Tabriz Petrochemical Cycling Team was established in 2002 as a club team in Tabriz, Iran. The team started participating in domestic tours and national leagues, as well as some smaller international tours, including the Presidential Tour of Turkey, Tour of Perlis, Jelajah Malaysia and Tour de Langkawi. After four years the team registered as a UCI Continental team team for the 2007–2008 season.

The team started the 2007–2008 season with a complete roster of domestic riders. In total, the team amassed 909.64 points participating in 5 foreign and 2 domestic international races. As a result, the team won the 2007–2008 UCI Asia Tour. At the end of the season the first three places in the individual ranking were occupied by three Tabriz Petrochemical Cycling Team riders.

For the 2008–2009 season, the team roster remained the same, with the addition of one rider from Kazakhstan. The team again participated in 5 foreign and 2 domestic international UCI tours and in total scored 1015 points, this was approximately double of the second placed team. As in the previous season, the first three places in the individual ranking were occupied by Tabriz riders.
