Cervelo Calls It Quits

Into the sunset they go.....

Well, all good things must come to an end, even if your a cycling team with bad ass hardware and wins to back it up. The Cervelo Test team is shutting down and will not race the 2011 season. Per General Team Manager Joop Alberda:

“The UCI changed the rules in a subtle way (on ProTour status), and the difference was we had to increase amount of races, or we had to increase the budget tremendously”

This news obviously has resulted in some scrambling for contracts by the Cervelo riders. Apparently many of them may be finding a home with the Garmin-Transitions squad next year.

In any case, now might be a good time to score some deals on Cervelo team jerseys and bibs; pretty damn fine looking kit if I say so. Im just glad there still making P3’s.
