    I'd have thought Columbia would have been a better sponsor for Boonen.

    I feel for the riders as Columbia make some of the most bland clothing i have ever seen.
    Cav will soon be seen wearing Tartan Fleece overshirts with teal combats. Poor man

    I don't think that's quite correct walker, when T-Mobile pulled out it left High Road in a difficult position and it's only right that they should try to get financial help from elsewhere. I agree T-Mobile did not just pull the plug and walk away but it was close to being that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thought T Mobile paid the money partly as compensation for ending the contract early.

    T-Mobile mad a decision to leave the sport so paid up there contract in full and left. No mugging involved

    Luck and some canny timing have left Team High Road a great opportunity to promote Team Columbia.....

    Will they be signing Boonen?

    You've got to feel sorry for those people who bought a highroad jersey only for it to be made obsolete within months!

    I've only got the cap, but it does have a degree of understated chic ;)
