We’re happy for another US-based squad, another sponsor in our often marginalized sport. Bonus that they’ve partnered with Livestrong and expect a strong roster.
The reaction to Team RadioShack has ranged from “awesome” to some snark and jokes on Twitter. Some are already wondering what their kits will look like and speculation who is on the squad, including George Hincapie. Quoted in the NYTimes, George said:
“I think Lance’s team is definitely good for cycling in America because Lance brings a lot to the sport and so much more interest to the sport,” said Hincapie, a popular American rider because of his longevity in the sport. “But I’m not going there. I guess, never say never, but I’m pretty happy with where I am right now. Nope, not going.”
@jenfairfax Kits? Black and Yellow for Livestrong or Red and White for Radio Shack?
@eduvauchelle I hope the team radioshack jerseys look better than that holding web page.
@taylorphinney I love it.
@ARTCRANK I won 7 Tours de France, and all I got was this lousy sponsorship..
What do you think?
