Update, more quotes
the team is racing in Rio right now, are you saying that the riders paid their own way?
I'm not saying
anything. I'm asking here if anyone knows more details about what's been said about the team's mgmt. It could very well be that the person making these claims has an agenda that I don't know about.
I wasn't trying to write an investigative report and didn't want to contact the team and force them to reply if there was more scuttlebutt out there that could be shared first. Sounds like no one knows anything?
You don't seem to mention who you are quoting from Twitter. I have a soft spot for team type 1... being that I am a type 1 diabetic. I always thought the idea of them racing in the Giro was a little far fetched... they just don't have the talent level needed. They also seemed to be expanding in way too many directions (Pro team, development team, elite team, womens team, triathlon team, RAAM)...
I don't believe I need to name the person here. A simple search will allow you to find the tweets on your own.
But speaking of which, here are some more
