GreenEdge Cycling pulls out of week-old partnership with Manuela Fundaćion

Having lasted just one week, GreenEdge Cycling’s partnership with the Manuela Fundaćion is over before it really began – and without even getting close to contesting a race in the recently proposed title sponsor’s blue and purple colours. On Friday GreenEdge’s founder and principal, Gerry Ryan, announced the Australian World Tour team would not pursue the agreement reached with the Spanish not-for-profit and would continue under the banner of Mitchelton-Scott for the rest of the year. It’s been signed since 5 June and it went public on 12 June.” GreenEdge Cycling has been racing on the World Tour under the banner of Mitchelton-Scott since 2018 but the team has been searching for a new naming rights holder since the team’s original title sponsor, Orica, pulled out in 2017. “This will include a return to full wages for all riders and staff once World Tour racing commences in August and a commitment to the year 2021 as we search for a suitable sponsorship.
