AUSTIN, TX (CN) – News was breaking yesterday in Central Texas not only because of the fast moving fires that are burning out of control in the rain stricken state, but also because as the summer cycling season comes to an end many are wondering what the future of Team Radio Shack entails. We are encouraged to report that there is some good news for both – 80% of the Spicewood fire (near Austin, TX) has been contained and Radio Shack will retain 33% of the their new teams name.
Many cycling fans where thrilled to hear that Team Radio Shack will not be entirely disbanding as many cycling teams do after a short two or three year contract – But the news doesn’t stop there. New information gathered by our Emmy Award Wanting reporters at Chamois News have revealed that Team Radio Shack has become “America’s Team” in the sport of cycling due to its past support of riders Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Chris Horner, many on the Trek Livestrong U23 team whom are American and our continued need for confusing cable connectors and outlet adapters.
Much like Rupert Murdoch, Chamois News has been tapping the phones looking for leads and recently listened in on a phone call between Radio Shack and the Dallas Cowboys front office. With the success of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado, seems Jerry Jones wants in. Sure they have their cheerleaders but without a conference championship since 1995, the Jumbotron needs some excitement. Enter American Cycling!
