|Mercury is sure to make the Tour de France next year, and the organizers are thinking of extending them an early pre-invitation.:) That's right, Mercury is rumored to be joining forces with Le Francois de Jeux (de Who?) next season after the falling out of co-sponsor Viatel. It seems if you can't get in on results, you can get in by being French.
The teams budget is said to be about 4.5 million US dollars, and the team name is undecided at this point.
