Did you ever have a store that you frequented go out of business? When the new store opened, did you erase the memory of what once was there out of your mind? Me neither. I see the new but I still see the ghost of what came before.
Well, the ProTour is moving on with the granting of a license to Unibet.com Cycling team. We will get to see former Green Jersey winner Baden Cooke back in the top tier of cycling.
Still, I will always see the ghost of Phonak. I dosen’t help that the ProTour chose a replacement team whose colors are close to what was there before. I’m OK with that since an alternative is the blue that makes Milram, Discovery, Quickstep, Gerolsteiner, indistinguishable. Even Astana is sometimes too close for comfort.
