I just found it odd that Vaughters used him as a marker of performance knowing that he probably (hopefully) has a different history than TJ-S or another young rider would have.
They are selling their bikes and stuff. Rumors are that Specialized are out and that these babies are boing to replace them: http://www.kemobikes.com (no joke...)

The gap is now under one minute. We don't really know why it has dropped so quickly.
Voeckler is bleeding from a scrape wound on his chin. He was fussing a few minutes ago about something. Perhaps he crashed in that tunnel, which we now hear was over 2km long?

Interesting, I have never heard of Kemo bikes before. Learn something new each day.
It probably is true though: http://www.kemobikes.com/it/news-media/news/kemo-sponsor-pro-cycling-team-312

Has this sport, on its top-tier level, ever faced a trend of lack of sponsorship or support before? It seems as if with each successive year we have fewer sponsors willing to continue contracts, fewer new sponsors, and so on. I'd like to know if you can think of any similar cycle that may have occurred in the past.
I believe this trend has only a little to do with doping-related negative press about the sport, but the majority of reasoning for a (potential) sponsor's willingness to fund a team having more to do with a return on investment, but that's perhaps for another topic entirely and not necessarily for this forum outright.
