Been over a month since we had an update.

In non-race news we missed the April Fool's joke that Pfizer (world's largest viagra manufacturer) were going to be the new sponsors.



Quote
"This partnership will accelerate our riders performance tremendously, on and off the bikes"

"This is extremly exciting", said the team's Canadian sprinter Guillaume Boivin

Luis Lemus is back on the road finally after his leg break.  :cool



Meanwhile on the racing front there haven't been any big results.

Istrian Spring Trophy: one top-ten for Boivin, illness for Turek and some crashes for various riders

Coppi e Bartali: Butler didn't quite have it on the two climbing days (longer climbs suit him better I think). They did say that they realized "there is still a way for us to go before we can be a constant factor in big stage races", but Raim also said "Listen, it would be easier for us to compete in smaller races but what is the point". Nicki Sorensen added "Its a growing experience and growing takes time".

GP Adria Mobil: " My jersey is no longer black and green. Its a lot more white and green from all the salt" Turek was in the break for a lot of the day, but it came down to a sprint with Raim finally getting a chance and taking ninth (which he wasn't happy about).

Races coming up include Tour du Finestere, Tro Bro Leon and Croatia.
