  • I think that ineos monstrosity is particularly jarring because it’s a ridiculous vanity project which makes a point of not giving a fuck about the environment both in its design (“uncompromising”) and the way its development is funded. I don’t have nearly as much of a problem with a team funded by a chain of supermarkets or a telecom operator.

    I don’t like any of the riders less because of their sponsor, though. I do think less of riders with leadership potential selling out to become wagon B in the Sky train.

  • Sponsored riders doing sponsored things. Which of the other teams/sponsors are better?

    Mitchelton-Scott and Astana are also in Oil, but only Ineos is promoting a vehicle that pointlessly burns more oil than anyone needs, it's excessive size clogging up our streets and increasing air pollution and road danger that kill tens of thousands a year.

    Most of the other teams are in telecoms or tech.
