New Sponsor for USPS for 2005!

But I don't know who it is yet.....


The US Postal team will continue in 2005 with the same structure as it currently possesses but a new name, according to directeur sportif Johan Bruyneel. Quoted by Reuters at the Tour du Languedoc-Roussillon Bruyneel said, "I can tell you that we have found a sponsor for the team next season when U.S. Postal service stop their involvement."

Bruyneel made the comment in the context of denying an Italian press report that Armstrong planned to retire after the Tour de France. "The article did not quote Lance or anyone close to him. I think it's wrong. I'm even certain it is."

Bruyneel would not say who the new sponsor will be.

i'm kinda hoping subaru will step up its involvement. they're tied more to lance, i guess, but i think it'd be a good fit. also, i've noticed they picked up AMD as a moving-up-the-list sponsor. if nothing else, that'll make me think twice before buying an intel-based computer for my next one.

I heard Berry Floor were extreamly happy with their involvement, maybe they're taking it to the next level. So glad to hear that they are keeping the team structure together.

This is just a guess but I think it might be Coca Cola. This way they could have a cycling racing family. Remember the commercial they had with LA and the nascar drivers last year. This is one company that could easily afford it.

Plus they are an international company. They certainly fit on the advertising side. Love to see a Saeco/Coca Cola bunch sprint, all those red jerseys.

I would like to see Subaru step up and sponsor a road team. They have the funding plus they already have Lance

Ok... if not Popeye's, fershizzle it would have to be Roscoe's. That's some good @ssed chicken, and I've lined up more than once around Roscoe's in Hollywood. We need one in Chicago, cause I'm in serious Roscoe withdrawal.

If Popeye's Chicken does it, will Sherwin and Liggett refer to the main group as the "pullet-ton?"

Dell would be great. I heard that Michael Dell's wife is an avid trriathlete. At least she knows a little bit about riding, but that would be a conflict with AMD. Oh well, somone will step up.

Cheers

Maybe if they get sponsored by Budweiser Beer, and Pick-A-Part Maybe the boys can refer to the main group as the "Mullet-ton" ? ya think ?

maybe Lance and the boys can grow a 10/90 and rock out to ZZ Top !

Or maybe it would wise Dell up enough to include AMD in their line (probably not, but would be nice).

Dell, AMD, or Berry Floor would be pretty nice options. I think Dell or AMD would probably have better colors (still blue if dell, or that awsome AMD green). But if Gateway sponsored the team they could all be riding the spotted cow themed project one bikes

Harold's Chicken is great. I love that place. And now I live just around the corner from this burrito restaurant. I'm too scared to visit... I can't be running over there every day for the burrito of the day, so I avoid it like the plague.

MMMMMMMMMM.... burritos......

I would love to see Subaru take the main sponsorship. I just purchased an Outback from one of the dealerships here two weeks ago and their showroom had huge photos of Lance everywhere. The salesperson said that they use Lance in their training videos.
