And they've been saying pro cycling is dead from the day it began. Its still here.
More than any US sponsor is willing to spend money/time-wise. Pro-cycling sponsorship in the traditional sense is dying for sure. Quickstep won almost 100 races this year and just got title sponsorship for next year. Cannondale-Drapac(EF) had to crowdfund just to stay alive last year.
