Rabobank cycling team restarts as Blanco Pro

The former Rabobank professional cycling team is to continue competing under the name Blanco Pro – at least until it finds a new main sponsor.

Rabobank said in October it was pulling out of most professional cycling sponsorship because of the doping scandal surrounding Lance Armstrong, which also implicated former Rabo cyclists.
The team’s current communications manager Richard Plugge will take over as team leader.
Bike-maker Giant was tipped as a likely main sponsor but has decided to remain a sub-sponsor of the team, news agency ANP said.
