Goodbye to my Colavita Friends. Hello Union Velo

Well it's official. I have ended my sponsorship relationship with Colavita Bolla and agreed to race in the glorious blue and yellow colors of Union Velo. I've made a few friends at Union over the past few years and for whatever reasons, I've always declined their invitations to ride with them, until now. Knowing what I know and who I know on the Union team, it was a no-brainer for me to [finally] join their team. I've enjoyed racing with the Colavita riders this past season- Thad, Rick, Mark, Kieran, Bob, Rhys, Oli. These are all good people who I am happy to have met, and who I hope to remain friends with. Hopefully I am not booted from their Yahoo board, the way that Arc-En-Ciel booted me after I declined their recent invitation to ride with them. Conversely, I've been a member of Union's Yahoo board for years, even though I didn't join the team all of this time. That says a lot about the Union Velo attitude. Wish us luck!

My Colavita team kits ae offered for sale on ebay (this link shows everything that is presently listed- after Sunday, the Colavita clothing won't appear):

Hi Murat

Don't worry we won't shut you off the colavita board.... But you may be required to give a few lead outs at the races to keep your access :-) !

Good luck with Union Velo.

Friendship means a heck of a lot more than the clothing on our backs... Enough said. Thanks friend.
