Not a huge surprise given new ownership.
Will another sponsor step up to the plate.
Sky news is also reporting the story.
Need to know the name of the new owners soonest so that all the haters can get their hateful posts ready
Sly and the Family Stone are entering a bid.... then we can have the aptly named Team Sly....
New name,new image.Same team.?
This isn't a surprise - they should be able to get a new set of sponsors. However, it'll take a big backer to keep things anywhere near the same level.
It should be Team Amazon next then all the packages will be tracked and arrive on time.
At least Geraint Thomas will get one year of his new, better paid contract.
I doubt they will get a more lucrative sponsor and next year will be very interesting indeed.
Clearly it’s become to toxic a brand to be seen with. No surprise they pulled the plug. If it’s to carry on as is who ever wants it will need deep pockets
Chances are it will be a betting company or online casino
@Threevok maybe right can’t see that ending well either.
Not sure about that. Is cycling a big betting sport?
Given Sky are reported to have bankrolled the cycling team with a budget bigger than anyone else's it will be interesting to see whether they can attract a big sponsor to maintain this or will drop down to the same levels as the likes of Movistar
I don't know about that, but it's more about raising brand awareness, than anything else
