Also SBTB budget is still far from Sky and RSNT, so eventhough they got Tinkoff as Co-sponsor they havent got the biggest budget in cycling at all.
Btw sounds as if spidetech might be sponsoring Duggans salary: "As a part of Duggan's move to Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank, SpiderTech will become a partner of Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank in 2013."
