was watching CNBC the other day and they flashed that up. Caught my eye and thought well that could mean the end of Viatel. With Mercury wanting the exposure in Europe I guess they'll have to find somebody else to partner with.

... just kidding... at least Mercury "appears" to be on sound footing... and along with other corporate sponsors... I'd hope that Team Mercury/(fill in the blank) will make another stab at next year's Division One TdF standings...

Be the bike.

Mercury reported the other day that the team is not in trouble. The American section of the company has filed Ch. 11. The European section of the company is reportedly doing well. The team reported that this Ch. 11 situation should have no impact on their budget or sponsorships. I believe it was www.cyclingnews.com that I saw this on.
