Rabobank to End Its Sponsorship of Professional Cycling Teams

Bert Bruggink, member of the Rabobank Managing Board:

“It is with pain in our heart, but for the bank this is an inevitable decision. We are no longer convinced that the international professional world of cycling can make this a clean and fair sport. We are not confident that this will change for the better in the foreseeable future.”

I like this signal to the professional cycling sport. The sport is sick and far from clean. Let’s hope it will change something. Rabobank has balls if you ask me.
