Team Sponsorship 17/18
« on: May 16, 2017, 10:10 »
Time to start a thread for the team & sponsorship changes that are currently in the works.

First up: #murias go ProConti! :cool


They just held a press conference, there'll be more news about this later in the day.

    "The spirit of Basque cycling can be a great reflection of the way our companies work and that is what we want to show the world," said team officials.

    "Anyone who wants to join our project, to contact us because all initiatives are welcome," they have concluded.

    I could be wrong, but it sounds like they are still after money. :P

    They have been saying for a couple of years that they wanted to go PCT. Now that has changed from speculative to definitive - Is it just a brazen attempt to flush out sponsors? Getting Guillen to say they would get a Vuelta wildcard is good marketing, but I think most folks would assume that would have been the case anyway.

    More details needed.

    Sounds a bit like it, yes.

    More details needed.
    I think that they're not so stupid to go out and announce a ProConti team if they don't have the funds for that (at the most basic level). More money to get the team to a higher level is then always welcome.

    Irish cycling has been dealt a massive blow with news that An Post is abruptly ending all of its cycling sponsorship deals.

    The national postage company, which is struggling financially, has confirmed on the eve of the Rás it will no longer sponsor the event.

    And it is also pulling out of Rás na mBan and the An Post-Chainreaction Continental-level trade team.

    The withdrawal was anticipated because of the company’s own difficulties.
