It depends if the team stays Danish or not. If it's under a Danish flag then Saxo can justify it, but if it were under a Spanish flag then Saxo would probably call time. Although we should be honest, Riis has been looking for sponsors to replace Saxo for years. The relationship with Saxo is on the basis that there was no one else and that Saxo would keep the team going as a last resort - it's very much a personal deal with Riis.
