  1. How much does it cost to run a pro cycling team and where is this money
    spent?

    Simon Richardson explains.

  2. Interesting Simon says teams will purchase nutritional products if they do
    not get on with sponsors products, somewhat misleading if you thought your
    favourite Pro-cycling team won stages/GC’s fuelled by a sponsors product
    only to find out it wasn’t used by the team (some/all/one or two riders).
    I’m not surprised but also not something I was aware of until just now 

  3. How many buses do most of the teams own? Also, when they go from Europe to
    the USA for something like the Tour of California, how do they transport
    the buses?

  4. So my question is, “What’s in it for the team ownership group?” Does anyone
    (other than the riders and staff via their salaries) actually make any
    money?

  5. How much would you guess it takes to run a Pro Cycling team?

  6. Sponsorship in golf is similar in regards to kit some simply continue to
    use old clubs made to look like new sponsor . Cheating in a way as your
    fooled into buying one make of club to reflect your hero but he/she is
    actually playing with a totally different manufacturer. Same with drinks
    may say red bull on the outside but something totally different on the
    inside.

  8. ‘Teams have to buy extra bike stuff. It could be additional nutrition
    products…’ HA! Quality line. Team might have to look elsewhere if they
    don’t get on with their title EPO sponsor.

  9. I would like to see the teams racing around f1 tracks so on a given day
    there would be a fastest single effort on the home straight. Single lap
    time trial, Team Time trial and then an all out all teams racing for about
    10 laps. points awarded for each area and overall winner of the day and
    team winner of the day
