Nothing but alot

Bauer who's pretty connected to the business community says its not related.

But I'd hate to be working the phones for cycling sponsorship this week.

There's just not a lot of money in Canada for cycling. It's the same thing that happened to Symmetrics; they needed to expand their program but the money just wasn't there. The choice was to race the same abbreviated schedule for another year or release the riders and try to put together the needed infrastructure for the following year.

Of course, that's incredibly risky because without the riders (Tuft, Pinner, Meier, etc) you don't have much to sell to investors.
