rock racing team closing down discontinue tyler hamilton rock and republic jeans bicycle pro tour uci continental cycling bike

VeloNews is reporting that Rock Racing Pro Cycling Team may be the victim of some budget cuts at Rock & Republic Jeans.

We’ve got one of our writers looking into it and we’ll keep you posted…

ten names were left of the list cause that idiot ball contracted 27 riders, the uci only always 17 riders to be on a Pro Continental team. if he spent more time reading the rules and less time giving second and third chances to see how many ex-dopers he could get on a team, maybe he’d known that. see below about the Rahsaan Bahati, the cirrent Nat’l crit champ being left of the team.

also Ivan Dominguez is going to the big league. he is joing pro tour team Fuji-Servetto. so there is an empty spot on that list from the velo news site.
