First, I will put the rumours to bed and announce that I will be staying with my current bike sponsor for 2021. That would be myself because I am slow, and no one would ever sponsor me. The only changes I expect on my bike this year are the used Thomson seatpost I just snagged and some new bearings for my pedals.
But there are a bunch of pro sponsorship changes happening, which is interesting since you are sponsoring professional athletes that are not really competing. If you haven't seen Josh Amberger's Specialized sponsor video, look it up. It's a riot.
@Matt - are sponsorships handled by head offices or local offices? I'm thinking a combination of the two, which would explain why all of the Spanish Spesh guys appear to be staying in place while the Commonwealth athletes are all changing. Either that or Canyon is going to sponsor all the remaining pro athletes in the world and they figure they have Spain covered with their Movistar deal.
We watch a lot of old Christmas movies at my house : White Christmas, Wonderful Life, Bishop's Wife, Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th, etc. The one thing I have noticed in these old movies is that people are always yelling. Half the dialogue is people yelling. It's like watching a Nickelodeon sitcom.
@Rash Watching the faces of grandparents and teenagers when the porn actor stand-in scenes happen in Love, Actually are a highlight of the season for me. I also keep hoping for a director's cut where Liam Neeson reverts to type, and the object of the kid's affection is kidnapped by Albanians.
