First Banesto and now ONCE...

Accordning to cyclingnews ONCE has a new sponsor:

ONCE to become Liberty Seguros

ONCE-Eroski team director Manolo Saiz has announced the name of the new sponsor that will take over the team: Liberty Seguros. The company, part of multinational financial and insurance giant Liberty Mutual, will sponsor the team for the next five years, ensuring that Saiz has plenty of scope to work on improving the squad.

The team composition will be much the same as this year's ONCE squad, with riders like Isidro Nozal, Igor González de Galdeano, Koldo Gil and Allan Davis all part of it. It's not yet confirmed whether Joseba Beloki will remain with the team, although he has not yet signed for another squad.

Good news .

I was wondering about ONCE, guess they are finally taken care of. Be interesting to see if Beloki is still there, he said he would be but needed a decision in a week or so...and he said that 3+weeks ago at least. Wonder what Nozal will be doing now.

The good news here is that this is a company that wants to do business throughout Europe and as a result, we might get to see Once/Liberty Seguros more than just a few times outside of Spain. Obviously, Once was most interested in selling lottery tickets in Spain...maybe a few classics might be in the future??
