Quest to Go Faster

There is a great piece at cylingnews.com entitled "Top-level teams and riders get their way in the name of going faster" about teams/riders using equipment form a source other than a team sponsor.

I wonder what Zipp thinks about its wheels being covered with Easton stickers or what Time thinks about having its forks put on Specialized's bikes, especially since Specialized outbid Time to sponsor Quickstep.

They don't care -- it's all cash in hand!

Feather in their caps. Der Jan rode Zipps for years before Zipp was a household name.

I occaisionally drink beer from other breweries than Santa Fe Brewing Company. Somehow I don't think they care.

Yeah, but I bet you don't put Santa Fe labels on the other company's beers!!!
