History of Cycling Pro Teams

While talking to a friend today we were wondering how long has some of the pro tour teams been around. My favorite team Credit Agricole has been around since the 40's-50's. Before you say I'm wrong they were Peugeot till 1986, Z till 1992 and GAN till spring of1998. I know Rabobank has been around since the 80's with different sponsors and T-Mobile since the early 90's. What about the other teams? I know most of them have been around for less than 5 years. Do any have a long history?


PS I did post this at another online forum

I know 7-eleven became Motorola in 91. But did Motorola switch to Postal or was it formed out some peices of Motorola with different owners. I don't know for sure.
