Leopard Trek confirms merger with RadioShack , Press Release , Bruyneel and Becca speak out on new team
I think the departure of Brian Nygaard to GreenEDGE is fantastic news: Becca confirms Nygaard's departure from Leopard Trek. Except that Flavio Becca wants us all to know that this team will not be American (in spite of the two American companies sponsoring the team), this team will be Luxembourgish. Leopard will continue as license holder of the team, and the team will be based in Luxembourg with a Belgium DS, Johan Bruyneel.
The other big question is who is buying out the contracts of the remaining unsigned riders resulting from the mergers. Will they be subsidized or influenced regarding the teams they will ride for?
