They're ranked somwhere in the high teens out of the domestic squads. I think Huang was like 39th or something. I'm very curious as to what kind of deal Horner was given on this one. The money was certainly what did the talking and not team structure.

unless Webcor has a budget of over $300,000 then it could be. Supposing Horner is making $40k a year, then thats 13% of the team budget. I don't think most DIII teams pay that much. In 2002, Lombardi's Ofoto proposal called for a budget of $250,000 so I doubt it will differ from Webcor. Although, Steve Larson does ride for them, so they definitely have something up their sleeves.

Yeah, that's kind of interesting... Isn't webcor a small market (ameteur) team?

Yeah, Webcor has been a development team. Apparently they have decided to step it up a bit. I guess the taste of success they got with Huang at Univest (and T-Mobile) spurred a little higher investment in the sport. Helps that the CEO is a big cycling fan.

Good for them!
