No Cervélo (and no Rollin) in Québec / Montréal ProTour races.

22

(link in French) Bad news as Cervélo will not make the trip across the Atlantic for the two Canadian events. It seems it's too costly for Cervélo to make the trip (50000 euros) and that the race promoters don't want to pay Cervélo as much as they would like. According to Serge Arseneault (race promoter), Cervélo was to bring a very disappointing team (he called it a C team), but wanted the same privileges as the ProTour teams, something Arseneault was not ready to give especially considering the riders (Rollin excepted) that were planned. He was ready to pay for Cervélo's expenses while they were in Québec, but not for the travel itself. Rollin could still be there if he makes special arrangements to be with the Canadian National Team (managed by Steve Bauer) It is somewhat surprising (Cervélo is a Canadian company after all), but I have only one thing to say: BAH!
