We must also recognise that it could be the case that Sylvan Adams is throwing a few Canadian $ the way of the various organizers, generous billionaires are handy things to have on board. He's involved in real estate and I can't see any obvious Canadian or Israeli partners on the various race websites, so we can't be sure of it with any certainty.
He moved to *il, so he'd be throwing shekels now. :P

It's a possibility, of course, but I don't think it's what happened. The team budget isn't that cozy to begin with, and in that case wouldn't it make far more sense to put the money into the team?

In fact the team feels very unrounded and skewed towards these targets.
That's not a bad thing in my book. We need more classics-focused teams from outside Belgium. ;)
