Cannondale the sponsor was confirmed for the team of Garmin-Sharp currently. Many spots have been filled by the Dale boys of C group temporarily. Ted King and Tyler Farrar are proving to be the best bet on the market. Of course, there are more people out but their skills complement each other.
Accusation on Alexander Kolobnev and Alexander Vinokourov on the basis of bribery is being questioned. Reports and investigations suggest that a monetary transfer did take place which was profusely called as loan. In Belgium priority of prosecutorial version is being hailed for protecting the integrity of the cyclists. Questions are raised as to what comes under crime of cyclists and what does not. It is believed that sponsors are not behaving at their best as they should be regarding the riders. As far as Tyler Farrar is concerned it is a known fact that he is leaving his team and settling in for some other team. He also has plans made up for 2015 Qhubeka.
Contract was made last year but Farrar had to wait to sign up for the new team. Many sponsors are ready to take up the charge for Tyler but when it comes to owning up the shuffling of teams is creating chaos for Tyler but he does not show it since it is better money may be which involves him to go and settle for another team. A career move and change is a big decision for him and now how far are the sponsors going to support or will they change their attitude towards him and sign other riders for sponsorship is a bright chance. Tyler does not fear the sponsors as he takes what comes naturally. If he sees a bright future with some other team he moves on which is quite acceptable.
