Most times I see a picture of a pro they have a shimano equipped bike.
Is it because they think shimano is better/cheaper or do shimano sponser more teams than campagnolo ?

More use Shimano, and it has nothing to do with better/cheaper. Everything to do with sponsorship. A few teams use Mavic (Big-Mat ?).

Mavic has yet to release a complete groupo. Even their so called "sponsored teams don't use a complete groupo.

Mavic does have a complete gruppo, Mavic SSC. Mektronic shifters, brakes, crank, and of course hubs/wheels. I believe Big Mat uses the complete gruppo.Check it out @ http://www.mavic.com

Shimano my sponsor more teams then Campy. The Pros will usually use what ever the sponsor give them though some times they may use their favorite frame with the sponsor paint job on it.

that Shimano has been foisting upon unsuspecting members of the pro peloton, such as poor Julio "Toothless" Perez. ;-)
