I don't want to start another Campy/Shimano neverending discussion but I do wonder: during the last season I noticed that close to all European pros used Shimano equipped bikes, Says-Deschacht and a lonely Saecco-Italian being the notable exception and I wonder why. The Rabos, but also Wellens, Vervecken, the boys from Holland, Eastern Europe, France, Germany and the USA all used Shimano. Same with the women (Küpfernagel, vd Brandt, the French girls). Is this only a matter of sponsorship or do they actually prefer Shimano over Campagnolo in the European pro cross scene? If so, for what reason?
