that's really unfortunate. Let's hope he manages to get a spot somewhere. Could be very useful that he's strong and starting out (so not too pricey yet).

Who would have thought anything Chris White is associated with would actually go belly up. Seems there is a god.

All the best in getting Cletus a ride somewhere John if the plug really is pulled on Pegasus. It's late in the piece but he's far too talented to be sitting on his arse.

Such bad news. I hope the riders and staff find alternatives, although I know how tough that will be now... :(

I've heard that Aldo Sassi may have died today. Not confirmed yet, but if so, vale, Aldo.

A legend.

I sat with Aldo and his wife at a dinner at the Worlds here. From only a couple of hours with him, it was clear he was a man with gravitas, dignity and a good sense of humour.

It's a sad loss - amongst other things for the sake of anti doping.

In the wake of Pegasus, a really good article on sponsorship and the framework of pro cycling :

Funding is secured, but by the sounds significantly reduced. That means staff and riders (and / or programme) will likely be reduced.

I hope it works out, but it doesn't sound sustainable for more than 1 season.
