Sad day for cycling

I just read over at Cycling News that ONCE is discontinuing sponsorship from next year onwards. As the article says ONCE has been involved with cycling for 15 years, and in these tough economic times that is no mean feat.

One of my all time favourite riders, Laurent Jalabert, an awesome rider who has won both the green sprinters jersey and the polka dot jersey for the King of the Mountain, also spent some time at ONCE as did Aussies Neil Stephens and Stephen Hodge.
