    What happened to Slipstream?

    I thought I read yesterday that Slipstream...I think that was the name...had made the field, but today I don't see them. Do they have a different name/sponsor or are they not going to be in the field?

    DP

    Edit...I just found the answer to my own question. Sorry for the new thread.

    They are Team Garmin/Chipotle

    Yeah, they changed from Slipstream-Chipotle to Garmin-Chipotle. It just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Columbia makes a lot more than just raincoats. They have a whole line of "outdoor gear." Baselayers, fleece, outwear, etc. I have a few Columbia baselayers. I sometimes wear them when I ride.

    I understand Columbia is gearing up (if they haven't already) to produce high end cycling clothing. Putting their name on a pro cycling team (riding in the most watched sporting event in Europe), is a shrewd marketing tactic, since they're trying to break into the European market.
    I'm slow, but i'll get there eventually.
