Anyone have an update on Kelme's financial problems. I've been hearing rumors for months.

If Kelme dissolves prior to the tour:

Who gets in?

What happens to riders like Sevilla?

Any info would be appreciated.

... my understanding is, Sevilla has already put out feelers for a possible ride for le Tour...

... rumor has it that Big Mat would get the nod if Kelme is out...

... film at eleven...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Sevilla has been talking to Telekom be their rider in place of Ullrich (according to several news reports).

But during the Giro, the head of Kelme said that there were "misunderstandings" and that Sevilla and the other riders were just paid for past wins, salaries, etc, and that the team was in good order.

we'll see.

It apparently came from Sevilla himself.
