Bissell Pro Cycling Team, or simply Bissell, (UCI team code: BPC)[1] was an elite men's cycling team registered in the United States as a UCI Continental. The team competed on the USA Cycling National Racing Calendar and the UCI America Tour.

The team folded at the end of the 2013 season, after Bissell withdrew sponsorship for the team, and sponsored Axel Merckx's Bissell Development Team instead.[2]
