    Not a huge surprise given new ownership.

    Will another sponsor step up to the plate.

    This isn't a surprise - they should be able to get a new set of sponsors. However, it'll take a big backer to keep things anywhere near the same level.

    At least Geraint Thomas will get one year of his new, better paid contract.

    I doubt they will get a more lucrative sponsor and next year will be very interesting indeed.

    Clearly it’s become to toxic a brand to be seen with. No surprise they pulled the plug. If it’s to carry on as is who ever wants it will need deep pockets

    Chances are it will be a betting company or online casino

    Not sure about that. Is cycling a big betting sport?

    Given Sky are reported to have bankrolled the cycling team with a budget bigger than anyone else's it will be interesting to see whether they can attract a big sponsor to maintain this or will drop down to the same levels as the likes of Movistar

    I don't know about that, but it's more about raising brand awareness, than anything else
