I'm new to following the pro scene, but it seems to me that the main sponsors of many teams change quite frequently. Mapei, Aqua Scappone (sp?) and Coast are gone just from last year, shows about old Tours talke about "La Vie Claire" and of course there's 7-11. Seems like an odd business decision to put all that dough/effort into sponsoring a top flight team but only stick with it a few years.

So, will we still have USPS, Saeco, Kelme, Banesto, etc., etc. in five years?

Which of the current top-tier teams have had the same primary sponsor/team name the longest?
