Ignores the simple fact that Sky was purchased by another company that sees little to no value in supporting cycling. Cycling is not even a blip on the US medias radar where most of Comcast's interests lie.Bolder said:I don't think they are, though I know such technology exists. that doesnt account for all the bidons, energy gels etc that also get junked. The solution would be simple, which is that the UCI requires races to site large, clearly marked bins every 5k or so, and fine riders/teams who don't at least make an effort to get the old bottles etc. into the bins.rick james said:I’m sure the bottles are bio degradable
But back to Ineos -- I'd never heard of them. Despite what Sky (the corporation) have said, the drip drip drip of doping must have had an effect, and the AAF probably was the last straw. As a media brand used and known by people the world over, Sky probably figured they were getting a negative rate of return on their cycling investment, at least measured by credibility and image enhancement. But I think those sorts of things are less important for a faceless company like Ineos that doesn't brand anything and primarily sells B2B.
