I never felt the need to buy a Discovery or Postal jersey. I have wanted a Slipstream jersey now for a couple of years and will get one this year for sure. I'd like to support this team and would be proud to wear its colors.

Have not been following any team for a few years- A few riders yes but not teams. Last couple of riders I followed- Pantani and I saw him race in the UK a couple of times. And Although he has now peaked- One rider I have admired for a couple of years is Bettini. Will still be keeping an eye out for him this year.

But on the Team front- I think it is time to start supporting one. I never got onto the Discovery band wagon- and The last team I did follow was Liquigas. But only when they were riding Bianchi bikes.

So a new team with Hopefully a strong manager behind them- This should be a team to keep an eye open for. Not this year but give it a couple of years and they will be there.
