Nice rock work at the new hub in Eureka Springs. In the land of OZ…
“With women’s cycling, we saw the greatest opportunity to fulfill our mission to create a world-class race in Colorado that is socially impactful,” claimed Ken Gart, chairman of race organisers RPM Events Group. “By creating one great race instead of two average ones, we can shine a bright light on Colorado and pro women’s racing while effecting meaningful social change.”
One could be discouraged by the news that Sky is ending its sponsorship after this season. What does this say about the health of road racing? But they have been in the sport for 10 years (more than most sponsors) and won the TDF 6 times, Giro and Vuelta. One could say their goals were achieved and then some. We liken Sky to the New York Yankees of cycling. Big budget, best equipment and buying the best riders. It will be interesting to see who goes where at the end of 2019 or do they secure another sponsor(s). Click above to read the Cycling News piece.
