  • 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.

  • 3 teams sponsored by nations/regions of debatable human rights status.
    3 oil or oil related
    3? lotteries
    1 bank
    Out of 19 teams, I would say it is hard to pick out one as being the worst, and if I was picking, it wouldn't be Ineos - shitty as they are. And yes, fuck expanding car usage.

  • Mitchelton-Scott and Astana are also in Oil

    Mitchelton are a wine producer and hotel, owned by Gerry Ryan who owns the team. He made most of his money from Jayco, who built caravans and motorhomes. As far as I'm aware, he has no interests in oil.

    The team were previously sponsored by Orica, who manufactured explosives to assist in mineral extraction and mining.
