or any team racing bikes for that matter after the end of a season. i'm sure the top teams get new bikes atleast everytime a new model comes out, anyone know what happens to the old bikes? maybe they get given away. and i dont mean the bike LA one his 5th tour on. just in general, do teams sell there bike at the end of the season, do they go back to the manufacturer to be destroyed (ferrari used to do that with factory race cars).
