From the SBS Cycling Central website - "Australian WorldTour squad GreenEDGE has released a statement to the media explaining that it intends to announce a title sponsor for the team on Tuesday, May 1 in Melbourne".

I always wondered if Australia was going to have a WorldTour team, who would be the main sponsor - QANTAS, BHP, WESTPAC? and I guess my question will be answered on Tuesday. I was thinking that the company should have a presence in Europe, or going to have one.

Who do you think would be an appropriate Australian sponsor - Barbecues Galore, XXXX, Vegemite, Mortein? Or are they not going to be Australian??

Do their corporate colours have to be GREEN???

For companies that have a presence in Australia & the UK (not sure re Europe but the UK viewership and interest alone should be enough), BUPA. 

Coopers - Pale Ale would tie in beautifully with Green Edge .
It would be a dream come true for me , my favourite beer & cycling team in unison ..


ha ha ha ha  ,, another dream come true ..

From what I read the Australian corporate world wasn't showing enough interest but there was plenty from Asia... specifically  a few Chinese companies.

Vegemite is out as an "Australian"'s made by Kraft, a US company. So is's made by Castlemaine Perkins who are 100% owned by Lion Nathan who are controlled by the Japanese.

What about a Local sponsor with an Iconic product. Would then be mandatory at all coffee stops.

Not these little froggies...

their heads contain pigs fat whipped with sugar.

Baaaaaad for health.

I hope everyone that showed the faith and bought some current GE team kit get some discount on the new GE team kit....

Congrats on a new sponsor so soon BTW, I'm sure all the early season success went a long way to securing it.

And what a great start they've had. Really looking forward to the Giro.

Cyclists love coffee so about Hudsons or Gloria Jeans? Or if your looking something healthier Boost Juice!
