Picture This: From Blanco to Belkin

Dutch Team Blanco who have been without a title sponsor since Rabobank withdrew (they still supplied the team with the remaining year of funding left on the contract but did not wish their name to be linked with a team accused of systematic doping) in the Winter. It's expected that the Blanco Team will announce a new title sponsor today and that sponsor is pretty certain to be Belkin - an American company which builds and supplies electronics from “wireless home networking and entertainment, to mobile accessories, energy management, and an extensive range of cables.” Of course with a sponsor/name change comes a kit-change and though it isn't the official kit this picture is the only spoiler I could find, make of it what you will. The kit isn't important though - what is important is we have a fully sponsored team coming into the Tour de France with a fresh start and a reported 2 and a half year sponsorship contract...
