Good, but 2-3 years too late probably.


Hopefully Basso and Schleck will be next.

Danish ProConti team Cult Energy is in financial troubles and looking for a co-sponsor to be able to maintain commitments for this season and secure the teams future for the following years. Team manager Christa Skelde has resigned for health reasons, the job caused her too much stress.

Yep.

''The income statement above lists the figure in black and white: £24,479,000. ($38.1m / €31.1m, exchange rates below). That’s up 11% on 2013''

Vaughters on twitter related to this article said Garmin runs on $16M budget a year. Of course we knew it was much lower, but still :o :p

It certainly explains how they can hire all those domestiques who would be leaders on many other teams.

Bora decide to trump Sky's motorhome with a purpose built 19 meter long cooking truck, complete with dining room and some weird glass cube. I'm assuming that the glass cube is to show off a fancy pants sponsor made kitchen. http://www.bora-argon18.com/en/news/detailview/news/bora-argon-18-with-innovative-cooking-truck-at-the-tour-de-france/

The team don't get to keep it though. The sponsor will be using it for their own promotional work after the Tour.

Today 10:58

This years Volta a Portugal seems to be another borefest or Veloso-Marque showdown with the overused stages of the last editions beeing used again. Volta do Futuro features a stage to Oliveira do Hospital with the steep climb of Santa Ovaia, there will be a mtf on Alto de São Macário and a difficult stage to Oliveira de Azeméis. All these stages look better than what Gomes just presented.

You can check all the infos for both races here.
