Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.... cause it kind of is....
But how did you choose which ProTour team to follow?
Reason I ask is that 2007 will be my first season following pro cycling, and I really feel like I want to root for one team. Now, is that how most of you do it? Do you pick one team, or are you a 'fan of the sport' and just enjoy watching the races as they happen - no matter who wins.
Now, do you choose the teams according to:
1. Bike sponsorship. In my case, I ride a Cannondale, so I'd be a Liquigas fan.
2. One specific rider you like - For example, choose a team that has a strong Canadian rider (in this case T-Mobile with Michael Barry) and follow them.
3. Overall team philosophy - Team CSC appeals to me with their five key principles.
4. Something totally random - I like Disco's site, CSC has a whole bunch of cool wallpapers on their site, I saw 'Wired to Win', which featured two FD Jeux team members...
I understand that there may be as many ways as there are fans (of choosing whom to follow) but I just want to get a sense of what is most common.
PS: Obviously, being from Canada, I cannot play the 'nationalist' card and follow a Canadian team, as there is none.
