Sky are currently subject to three separate takeover offers from Fox, Disney and Comcast. Comcast in particular has extensive cycling interests and Fox is already a sponsor of the team. Also with Sky's control of F1 broadcasting rights why would they launch a motogp team?

I wouldn't put much stock in that, these things are generally paid for through the marketing budget and Disney in particular will likely shut both down as a cost-cutting measure.

IMHO. Specialized does not have a Big Time Rider. On the CRUX. They should sign Wout.

There isn't a 'Team Specialized'. However, Bora rides Specialized, they have this Slovakian rider who's pretty good...

I sincerely did not get your post. Does it imply that Specialized has no famous rider representing em?

He's talking about cyclo-cross. Afaik, Štybar doesn't ride on the CruX.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that the CRUX only belongs into CX races. I just did not get the "Big Time rider".
As RedheadDane said, about Road cycling I am not affraid for Specialized lack of representation!

Lotto of Lotto-Jumbo will end sponsorship after this year, but they claim to have a new sponsor.

Can't accuse them of flash sponsorship like Belkin. Let's hope it's a long term sponsor this time.

The folding of Sky would be a fun hypothesis. So many quality riders free on the market would be fun.

it's sponsored by Sky Italy though, as far as I know. And even for a potential MotoGP team we'd speak about costs of less than 10 million Euro a year
