According to a "credible source" one WT team hasn't paid any wages for the past four months
Ah, that is just great news. Not.

And at the same time, I can hardly say I'm surprised.

    In the end, the team was presented as "Neri Sottoli - Selle Italia - KTM" yesterday, as mentioned in the transfer thread.

    So after months of assuring that everything was fine, the fact that they couldn't even come up with a jersey makes you wonder if this is really the case. Neri has always been a sponsor with the team and stepped in as firemen in 2014 already after the big doping flip up - it may be more of the same this time, and probably for one year only again.

    The team is somehow hobbling along - but funds have to be tighter than tight. Especially since Visconti won't have signed for minimum wage.

     Gazetta reporting that Comcast are going to stump up the cash to fund 70% of Team Sky's budget for 2020/21.
