    A high end bike company will always suffer in these kind of economic positions.

    What's more concerning is that it may demonstrate that it's not sustainable to have a team sponsored by a company from the bicycle business...

    Not necessarily, remember Cervelo is a tiny company next to the likes of Specialized or Giant
  • I was really surprised that a company the size of Cervelo could afford a team of that scale/quality.

    As Justin says, they're tiny relative to Spesh, Trek, Giant, Cannondale etc.

    I seem to recall there was some Swiss personal wealth behind the team too.
    Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.
