ISD were simultaneously connected with teams at different levels last year: I guess Rabo Continental are technically a different team from their WT big brothers. Plenty of cycling equipment companies must have multiple deals.

I think it's a great combination.

Of course, for a long time Sharp was a famous sponsor of Manchester united. Could this be a message that Garmin sees themselves as the Manchester united of cycling?

This is awesome news that a company such as Sharp has come over to Cycling, hopefully they will look to stay with it for a long time period.
