I am trying to understand a little more. I tried searches within but don't see any clear answers. So...
Who owns the team Lance rides for? Who actually pays the payroll? Where else do they get income from?
Do sponsors such as Berry, USPS, and now Discovery pay this organization a sponsorship fee to get their name out there? How much?
Does this run true for other teams? Say Phonak?
Is it successful for the actual owner? Is it worthwhile for the sponsor?
Where can I learn more?
Thanks, and sorry if this has been done before.
