How much is too much sponsorship?
Raise your hand if you see this happening in your area:
Some local riders garner a sponsorship deal for their team that rivals a Pro Tour team.
Everything is paid for: bike, travel, entry fees, clothing, etc.
It sounds like a cool thing until you realize that they're all Masters 35+ who make more than >$75,000 per year.
And they don't allow junior riders on their team. In fact, they make no effort to recruit or cultivate any younger riders.
Is it my imagination, or is this trend growing?
